Photographer's Note

For 9 years now, with only a short break, I support English Heritage foundation which takes care about many ancient sites in England, while gaining free entry to their fabulous sites. Every time when I think I have visited all their sites in the nearby area, I find new places I have never heard about before. Now due to pandemics all sites are closed with exception of those sites which are actually available free for public.
Last Saturday, again the wonderful local park across the road was so full of people that I decided to drive in a search of remote place where I could exercise outdoor while being better socially distanced. Indeed, the Egglestone Abbey near Barnard Castle was most of the time empty with occasional passers by only. It is located near the Tees River which later passes through the town I live in.
This picture presents a probably the most characteristic spot on the site.

I found only one other photo of this abbey on TrekEarth.

Do you think its name evolved from Eagle Stone or rather from Eggless Town?
