Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Basingwerk Abbey is the ruin of an abbey near Holywell, Flintshire, Wales, in the care of Cadw. The abbey was founded in 1132 by Ranulph de Gernon, 2nd Earl of Chester, who brought Benedictine monks from Savigny Abbey in southern Normandy. In 1147, the abbey became part of the Cistercian Order and therefore a daughter house of Buildwas Abbey in Shropshire. In 1157, the abbey was given the manor of Glossop by King Henry II. The hilltop Monks' Road and the Abbot's Chair in Glossop is a reminder of the monks' efforts to administer their possession.show more
