Memorial Flowers

In a world where religion has retreated, people find new ways to remember and commemorate their departed loved ones. Many feel a spiritual bond with Whitby – to the sea, to the abbey on the headland and to the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. They leave flowers here – tied to railings and park benches – looking out to the far horizon. The flowers inevitably fade and die, leaving a poignant expression of absence.
