Egglestone Abbey. Phantom 3 standard

  • Description

    Founded in the 1190's, the Premonstratensian abbey of St John the Baptist at Eggleston was always in difficult financial straits, almost losing its Abbey status through being poor enoughto be a priory, Known as "white monks", the Canons undertook preaching and pastoral work in the region but followed the Cistercian rule of Austerity. The abbey suffered at the hands of the English & Scots armies, and after the Dissolution in 1538, the north & east regions were converted to a manorial hall. A new hall was built at Rokeby, although estate workers continued to live in the east range until the late 1800's
