Melorose Abbey

Melorose Abbey 

St Mary's Abbey, Melrose is a partly ruined monastery of the Cistercian order in Melrose, Roxburghshire, in the Scottish Borders. It was founded in 1136 by Cistercian monks at the request of King David I of Scotland, and was the chief house of that order in the country until the Reformation.

It was largely destroyed by Richard II's English army in 1385.

A lovely series Amelia.............all looking good in the sunshine. The ruins are still very impressive and it's easy to imagine how imposing the Abbey must have been back in the day!
