The building in the background is the 14th century Saint Catherine's Chapel ~ later on the abbey was destroyed by Henry VIII but the chapel was spared due to its high location ~ a good lookout building and sea-mark.. blended in the cloudy sky due to drab day.. added light touch of Topaz Adjust filter (thanks Mike Umbreit for the link)
