Wonderful carvings here. Curious as a bench though, do folks sit or lie down on it? Very beautiful.

Sitting on this bench would demand having your photo taken. If 6 people sat on it, all the better.
Lovely carvings. I was curious about the nuns, so Googled, and found:-
"Towards the end of the 12th century a group of Cistercians nuns, allegedly evicted from nearby Hutton Lowcross for rowdy behaviour, were resettled at Thorpe having been given some land there belonging to Whitby Abbey, on which they built a priory and mill. The nuns only stayed at Thorpe a few years, but their short stay resulted in Thorpe being renamed Nunthorpe."
Also, there is an article about The Praying Nuns HERE.
