Bolton Abbey, technically a priory - an Augustinian Priory - was established in 1154 beside the River Wharfe between Ilkley and Burnsall. The owner of Skipton Castle at the time, Lady Alice de Romille, gave the land to Augustinian priests and their Prior to build a priory. After four hundred years, in 1539, the priory became a victim of the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII.
