Bolton Abbey takes its name from the ruins of the 12th-century Augustinian monastery now known as Bolton Priory.
Bolton Abbey has been carefully managed by the Devonshire family since 1755, and remains the Yorkshire seat of the 12th Duke of Devonshire.
The landscape at Bolton Abbey inspires, and has been admired in the past by artists such as Turner, Ruskin and Royle, as well as the poet Wordsworth.
Bolton Abbey is the “jewel in the crown” of Yorkshire’s many landscapes, and the 30,000 acres of beautiful countryside boasting over 80 miles of footpaths to walk and explore.

I took a devastating blow today. My (lovely) day out at Bolton Abbey was ruined when I found out that someone very close to me has never EVER read or even seen Harry Potter... *cough*@sophielou_1997 *cough* 🙄🙄🙄 How have I let my friendship standards slip so much?!? I am very disappointed in myself. Unfortunately I cannot help but smile and go crazy hyper whenever I am around these humans. My smile betrays me and it seems that I am just going to have to accept the situation for how it is, as much as it pains me. 🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ I did happen to see a replica of the whomping willow...therefore this post is a tribute to the amazingness that is #harrypotter ...
