Shap Abbey

Shap Abbey was built in 1199, and was the last Abbey to be founded in England, and the last to be dissolved by Henry VIII in 1540 Located in a secluded but stunning setting by the River Lowther, it can be accessed easily from the main A6 road through Shap. The 15th century tower and other remains can be explored with the help of information boards all around the site.
