Ribbed Arches under Baysdale Abbey Bridge
Ribbed Arches under Baysdale Abbey Bridge
The priory was founded by Guido de Bouncourt with William de Percy as a principal benefactor and was firstly established at Hutton before moving to Nunthorpe and finally to Baysdale around 1189. The priory was in existence for over 340 years before it was finally dissolved in 1539 by Henry VIII when it was valued at over 20. Although all evidence of the nunnery in Baysdale has disappeared, a stone bridge over which many of the nuns must often have walked remains to this day.
