Whalley Abbey (west range), Whalley - Ribble Valley

The remains of this medieval Cistercian Monastery are jointly owned by the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church. The west range survives as a standing building. Emergency repairs to the roof and consolidation work to some of the ruins have been undertaken, but the fabric remains in need of significant investment. Historic England is in discussions with the owners about producing an options appraisal to identify an end use.
