Calder Abbey House


Calder Abbey House is an 18th century mansion house which adjoins the ruins of Calder Abbey. The Abbeey was founded in 1134, but became ruinous after the dissolution of the monasteries in 1536. Some of the stone from the ruined abbey was used to build the new house. Calder Abbey House is Grade I listed on the National Heritage List for England. Captain Thomas Irwin of Calder Abbey House is noted as having financed the building of St Bridget's Church in nearly Calderbridge in the 1840's.
