Richmond and Easby Abbey

Easby Abbey, also known as the abbey of St Agatha, is a ruined abbey on the banks of the river Swale. Set in the outskirts of Richmond, there is a short walk that you can do from Richmond Castle along the river to the Abbey. The Abbey was founded in 1152, it is now grade 1 listed and maintained by the English Heritage, although it is free to visit.

We made it to Richmond and had dinner in a little cafĂ© in the town centre. There was an art exhibition on in the old train station; I don’t find art interesting and we only went in because it was freezing, but I enjoyed looking at the different paintings of animals.
