Bolton Priory

Interesting
Bolton Priory was founded by the Augustinians in around 1154 in a setting of great beauty on a bend in the River Wharfe. On the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1534, the lead was stripped from all the roofs except for the nave of the church and the gatehouse; the nave is still intact. The front of the church is an outstanding example of Early English architecture.
