The remains of a Cistercian abbey founded in 1148, set on the banks of the Ribble against a backdrop of dramatic hills. After its dissolution in 1536, the monks were briefly returned to the abbey during the Pilgrimage of Grace. They remained in possession until the insurrection's collapse and the execution of their abbot.

Dogs on leads are welcome - contact site for any restrictions. Assistance dogs are welcome everywhere.


“The abbey ruins are surrounded by a wall and once through the gate you are transported into a wonderful peaceful place. Great for people who are happy to wander with their dog among the ruins. There are a couple of seats to sit with a packed lunch, or there is a pub done the road (sorry haven't tried pub so can't tell you if they are dog friendly) Also there are no toilets apart from the pub and parking is limited in the road. ”
