The breathtaking ruins of Easby Abbey lie within picturesque North Yorkshire countryside by the River Sawle. One of the best preserved monasteries of the Premonstratensian 'white canons', it boasts a magnificent refectory, gatehouse and canons' dormitory that you can explore. Founded in 1152, the abbey was suppressed in 1536 and within two years its buildings had been stripped and demolished. The ruins later became a subject for artists, including JMW Turner. The site is managed by English Heritage and is free to enter during reasonable daylight hours.

The ruin of the Easby Abbey is despite its "dilapidated" a monument near Richmond and just for the photos worth the visit!
