Bolton Priory, Wharfedale, North Yorkshire, England.

Bolton Abbey takes its name from the ruins of the 12th-century Augustinian monastery now known as Bolton Priory.

Bolton Abbey has been carefully managed by the Devonshire family since 1755, and remains the Yorkshire seat of the 12th Duke of Devonshire. The landscape at Bolton Abbey inspires, and has been admired in the past by artists such as Turner, Ruskin and Royle, as well as the poet Wordsworth.

Bolton Abbey landscape is the “jewel in the crown” of Yorkshire’s many landscapes, and the 30,000 acres of beautiful countryside boasting over 80 miles of footpaths to walk and explore.
