The Yorkshire Dales

Because it’s taken me nearly 10 months to post all my photographs from our trip to the Yorkshire Dales back in November 2021, I’ve brought them all together again in one gallery below.

Jervaulx Abbey

There are a number of ruined abbeys in and around the Yorkshire Dales. I’ve already posted about Bolton Abbey, and I have a post on Fountains Abbey to come. Today though is the turn of Jervaulx Abbey.

Like many religious houses in England and Wales, the 12th Century Cistercian Abbey at Jervaulx was ravaged by Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monastries circa 1540.
