Whitby Abbey Door Knocker

Intricate antique brass door knocker of Whitby Abbey that is a ruined Benedictine abbey overlooking the North Sea above Whitby in North Yorkshire. The grade 1 listed building is now under the care of English Heritage. The detail is unusual – the strike plate is in the form of a large tree and the Abbey sits in the foreground to form the knocker.Circa 1887
