Founded by monks who had a tough start on their journey – left to found a new abbey, founded new abbey, ransacked by the Scots, returned to parent Abbey, not allowed back in to parent abbey, etc., etc…

A visit to Byland is free and take you through some of the least explored areas of North Yorkshire, including the Howardian Hills Area of Natural Beauty. You could link in a visit to nearby Sutton Bank National Park Centre or the more complete ruins of an Abbey at Rievaulx.  For more details about Byland Abbey, visit here.
