Bolton Abbey is a small village in North Yorkshire situated close to the semi-ruined remains of a 12th Century Augustinian priory which also contains an unruined and functioning Christian church.
The interesting ruins of Bolton Abbey are open to the public and situated on the banks of the River Wharfe surrounded by many walking routes.
The old entrance to the abbey is now behind a more recent entrance that leads into the still functioning church.
Bolton Abbey features several interesting stone carved figures including a dog-like animal.
In addition to the early burials beneath and around the Abbey ruins, there is an old graveyard located behind the Abbey.
