The attempt took place on the 125th anniversary of the publication of Dracula, Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel, which took inspiration from the gothic ruins of the North Yorkshire abbey. To qualify for the count, entrants had to wear black trousers or a black skirt or dress, black shoes, waistcoat, shirt, cape or collared overcoat – and fangs on their top set of teeth.
