Attractions to explore nearby Jervaulx Abbey

Jervaulx AbbeyAbbey Tearoom, Jervaulx, Ripon HG4 4PH, UK

Jervaulx Abbey is a ruined Cistercian monastery located in a peaceful valley setting in the Vale of Ure, a few miles east of the Yorkshire Dales.  Apart from its historical significance and the beauty of the location, Jervaulx is known for its horticulture; over 180 varieties of wildflower grow in and on the abbey walls. The place name Jervaulx is first attested in 1145, where it appears as Jorvalle. The name is French for 'the Ure valley' and is perhaps a translation of the English 'Ure-dale',

Middleham Castle4.63 KMs away from Jervaulx Abbey

Middleham Castle at Wensleydale in Yorkshire was the childhood home of King Richard III. The castle was built to defend the road from Richmond to Skipton, though some have suggested the original site of the castle was far better to achieve this than the later location. After the death of King Richard III the castle remained in royal hands until it was allowed to go to ruin in the 17th century. Many of the stones from the castle were used in other buildings in the village of Middleham.
