No, I’ve been there several times over the years. Rievaulx Abbey is probably my favourite one in the North of England, for the splendid architecture. Byland, not too far from Rievaulx Abbey, is splendid too. 

This is huge! especially as it seems old enough to retain romanesque (hope that’s the good word) elements. Great Britain and ruined abbeys

It is absolutely huge. There are indeed a lot of classical elements to the architecture and even the surrounding estates, which were developed far later in the 17th and 18th Century. 

There’s plenty more there on the abbey grounds:

And tea rooms, of course. 🙂
