Ruinen von Bolton Abbey
Anlage

Bolton Abbey ist die Ruine eines Klosters aus dem 12. Jahrhundert im nordenglischen Yorkshire.

Geschichte

Das Kloster wurde im Jahr 1151 von Augustiner-Chorherren am Ufer des Flusses Wharfe gegründet, das 1154 Land von Lady Alice de Romille vom Schloss Skipton erhielt. Im frühen 14. Jahrhundert führte eine Plünderung durch Schotten zu schweren Schäden an den Gebäuden und zur vorübergehenden Aufgabe des Klosters. Nach der Auflösung des Klosters im Jahr 1170 wurde die Klosterkirche zur Pfarrkirche. Endgültig aufgegeben wurde es im Jahr 1539.

Die Ruinen des Klosters können immer noch besichtigt werden und wurden in Kunst und Literatur verewigt, dazu gehören zum Beispiel ein Gemälde von Edwin Landseer und ein Aquarell von William Turner, das sich heute im Britischen Museum befindet.

Außerdem wurde William Wordsworths Gedicht „The White Doe of Rylstone“ von einem Besuch in Bolton Abbey im Jahr 1807 inspiriert.
