Join English Heritage Senior Historian Dr Michael Carter on a tour of Rievaulx Abbey, looking at Aelred’s time as abbot. Dr Carter will explore the enduring importance of the saint to the Cistercian monks who prayed and lived at the monastery until its closure in 1538 on the orders of Henry VIII.

This event is graded as moderate access as there are some rough paths, grass paths and inclines and steps on site. Please dress for the weather, including footwear suitable for walking.
