Remnants of Blanchland Abbey

  • Description

    "The village owes its original existence to the foundation of the abbey in 1165. Blanchland means the 'white lands' - almost certainly a reference to the white habits of the Premonstratensian canons of the old Blanchland Abbey. To the rear of the photo is part of the Grade I listed abbey church." Photo by Pauline E, 2014.
