Dale Abbey, The Village, Dale Abbey - Erewash

Wall footings and standing east wall of Dale Abbey, a house of Premonstratensian Canons founded in circa 1200. The mostly late C13 remains were excavated in the late C19 and left exposed. The east wall and footings were consolidated and the museum was repaired and re-roofed in the early 2000s. The museum suffers from significant condensation. Historic England grant aided investigation work through a Section 17 Management Agreement in 2015. A repair grant has been offered to address these issues.
