Sawley Abbey was an abbey of Cistercian monks in the village of Sawley, in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire.
It was created as a daughter-house of Newminster Abbey. In fact, it existed from 1149 until its dissolution in 1536, during the reign of King Henry VIII.
The Landmark is set by the river, and its grounds make a great spot for a picnic. It’s a great example of an early Abbey. Indeed, you will have a much better appreciation if you do some homework before you visit.
