Roche Abbey

Heritage Open Day: An opportunity to visit the beautiful Roche Abbey and join one of our guided tours. Learn more about the fascinating history of this 12th century Cistercian Monastery, landscaped by Capability Brown. Beautifully set in a valley landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th Century, Roche Abbey has one of the most complete ground plans of any English Cistercian monastery, laid out as excavated foundations. Founded in the 12th century as a monastery of the Cistercian order, Roche Abbey was once home to 50 monks and 100 lay brothers. Unlike other Cistercian monasteries in Yorkshire, such as Rievaulx or Byland Abbey, Roche was modest in size which was more typical of the order.
