There are lots of scenic, secret places in Yorkshire. Lots of ruins suitable for hiding.....something! Like Rieveaulx Abbey....which houses the named saint of an old friend of ours, Prior Aelred:
Rievaulx Abbey, founded in 1132, was the first Cistercian abbey in the north of England. The abbey's greatest importance came during the rule of its third abbot, St Aelred (1147-67), when many of its surviving buildings were begun. Under Aelred, the community grew to 140 choir monks and perhaps 500 lay-brothers and lay servants.I'm sure Mimi will do fine despite the minor setbacks. Perhaps it's Maddy who should be worried!
When the abbey was suppressed in 1538, there were only 22 monks in residence, though they were supported by no fewer than 102 paid servants.
