Thornton Abbey

The Augustinian Monks Founded Thornton Abbey in 1139. Much of the Abbey is ruined, however the most spectacular feature to remain is the three story gatehouse. The gatehouse is an early example of brickwork which was begun around 1377 & displays some fourteenth century statues. The abbey is currently owned by English Heritage.
