Egglestone Abbey is located in North Yorkshire, just south-east of Barnard Castle. The Abbey was founded some time between 1168 and 1198 and it's founders - the Premonstratensians - wore a white habit and became known as the White Canons. It suffered at the hands of Scottish invaders and the rowdy English army who were billeted there in 1346 on their way to the Battle of Neville's Cross outside Durham and was dissolved by King Henry VIII in 1540, with the lands granted to Robert Strelly in 1548, who converted some of the buildings into a great private house that was abandoned in the mid-19th century.
