  The ruins of Jervaulx Abbey
by Andrew_W_K

If you take the road out of Richmond sign posted Leyburn and follow it for around 10 miles you'll come to the ruined Cistercian Jervaulx Abbey. I would recommend this trip becaiuse the drive from Richmond to the abbey takes you through some of the most beautiful Yorkshire Dales scenery.
The abbey itself is on private grounds but is open all year round. There is an honesty box to leave your entrance fee (2.50) and you can take a guide pamphlet as well for an extra 1.50.
The abbey dates from the 12th century and although there is very little to see the setting is worth the trek.
There is a car park and tea rooms across the road.

Address: Between Richmond and Ripon on the A6108
Directions: You can't miss it if you follow the main road.
