Jedburgh Abbey
Title: Jedburgh Abbey
Description: Jedburgh Abbey is an inspiring site as the traveller enters Scotland from the borders of England. It was founded in 1138 by David I and the Bishop of Glasgow. The building is a mixture of gothic/roman style and was at the mercy of English troops being so near to the border during the 13th to 16th centuries. Some of the stonework visible at the site is actually English fortifications built by occupying forces. It is owned by Historic Scotland.
