Egglestone Abbey is a ruined Premonstratensian abbey on the south bank of the River Tees, about 1 miles southeast of Barnard Castle. Founded in the late 12th century, the abbey church was enlarged in the 13th century and partly rebuilt. The Abbey was ravaged by Scottish invaders in 1315 and by the English army in 1348. The Abbey was dissolved in 1540 by Henry VIII and some of the buildings were converted into a large house that was abandoned by the mid 19th century and partly demolished. Now in the care of English Heritage, the ruins are listed, grade I, with details at: LinkExternal link A Scheduled Ancient Monument with much history and detail at: LinkExternal link
