Jedburgh Abbey

Scotland, founded as a priory by David I of Scotland in 1118, and colonized by Canons Regular of Saint Augustine from Saint Quentin, France. It became an abbey c.1147. In 1559, it was confiscated. A Protestant church constructed within the nave was used until 1875, when a new church was built by the Marquis of Lothian. The monastery has practically disappeared, but the church is entire.
