Biddlesden Abbey
Harringworth
East Northamptonshire Borough
Northamptonshire  England

Cemetery notes and/or description:
A Cistercian abbey founded in 1147 by Arnold de Bosco de Bois, steward to the Earl of Leicester. The abbey was wealthy, allowing the monks to pay for its continuation and survival past the Dissolution of 1536, but was finally surrendered in September 1538 and became the possession of Thomas Lord Wriothesley. Biddlesden Park House now sits on the site, and only a few stones of the original abbey remain.
