Kirstall Abbey would be a great backdrop for Gothic meoldrama.
On a more cheerful note, Fountains Abbey is floodlit on Saturday 26thOctober and also 2nd November from 5-9.30pm. AND its free.
The abbey ruins do look beautiful when floodlit and there is also the bonus of Northern Voices performing on Saturday 26 October. Holme Valley Singers on Saturday 2 November.
