About us

Selby Abbey is unique in the North of England, as the first monastery to be founded in the North after the Norman Conquest and one of the few in England to have survived as a parish church.

The Norman Nave and "Decorated" Chancel are considered to be among the finest examples of 12th and 14th Century architecture in England. The Abbey was granted its founding charter by William the Conqueror and is reputed to be the birthplace in September 1068 of King Henry I of England, the son of King William I and Queen Mathilda.
