Pilgrim's eye view on approaching St. Catherine's Chapel, Abbotsbury, Dorset
The chapel was built in the 14th century as a place of pilgrimage, and used by the monks of the nearby Abbey of Abbotsbury as a retreat. It has 1.2m thick walls to withstand the elements, as it is directly exposed to the sea from the south. The heavy buttresses can clearly be seen in the picture.
