Artist's Description

The museum at Kirkstall Abbey is a great place to visit, as well as a great collection of artifacts there are period streets that you can wander through soaking up the atmosphere of days gone by. There is also a lovely cafe. Tea and cakes go down very well after wandering round the abbey and grounds with the camera.

A brief history
The core of Abbey House was originally the inner gatehouse of Kirkstall Abbey, founded in 1152. When Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries the gatehouse was blocked at either end and became a house.

Since then the house has been a farmhouse and also the home of the Butler family, the owners of Kirkstall Forge. In 1926 Leeds City Council bought Abbey House.
