Kirkstall Abbey

Kirkstall Abbey is a Cistercian house on the outskirts of Leeds- and one of the best preserved monastic ruins in the country. Last time we were here- about ten years ago- it was looking a bit scruffy, but they've since spent £5.5 million doing it up. It's owned by Leeds Council- and admission is free.
