Easby Abbey (North Yorkshire)
Easby Abbey is an abandoned abbey on the banks of the River Swale near Richmond in North Yorkshire.
Founded in 1152 by Roald, Constable of Richmond Castle, the Abbey of St Agatha, as it is also called, had canons rather than monks as inhabitants. They wore white habits and were known as the White Canons.
Easby Abbey fell into ruin in the 16th century following Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries. Today, the abbey is maintained by English Heritiage and visitors can still see the lavish roof-height refectory.
