The remains of Newminster Abbey


Following a route through High Church will eventually bring you to the ruins of Newminster Abbey.  The abbey was built in 1337 but quickly destroyed by burning by Scottish raiders.  It was rebuilt in 1180 and owned lands up to the Scottish borders.  It became a victim of the first wave of dissolution in 1537 by Henry VIII
