Cistercian Abbey Locations
Initially a Savignic foundation, the abbey was taken over by the Cistercian order and responsibility for it was taken by Byland.
The original location at Fors proved unsuitable for the construction of the abbey and after the monks at Byland became involved it was decided to relocate several miles away on the banks of the River Ure.
