Whalley Abbey is a former Cistercian abbey in Whalley, Lancashire, England. After the dissolution of the monasteries, the abbey was largely demolished and a country house was built on the site. In the 20th century the house was modified and it is now the Retreat and Conference House of the Diocese of Blackburn. The ruins of the abbey have been designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building, and a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
Only the foundations of the church remain. The remains of the former monastic buildings are more extensive. The west range, which was the lay brothers’ dormitory, consists of two stories, and is roofed. This is currently used as a Roman Catholic church hall. To the south of the cloister, part of the walls of the former kitchen and refectory remain. The east range is more complete and includes parts of the walls of the former monks’ day room, parlour and vestry.
