White Ladies Priory

The ruins of the White Ladies Priory is located in a secluded, haunting spot in the county of Shropshire, West Midlands, straddling the border of England and Wales.  The Catholic women who lived and worked here wore white habits; hence the name of the site.  What you see here is dated to the late 12th century, but local legend says Queen Guinevere retired here following Arthur’s death.  It’s a beautiful spot where I could sit and think and write and take photographs for hours — but way too spooky to hang out after dark!
