Melrose Abbey - ref MA1

Photos and poster in the Melrose Abbey shopping mall  

' When distant Tweed is heard to rave,
And owlet to hoot o'er the dead man's grave ,
Then go - but go alone the while -
Then view St David's ruined pile ;
And home returning , soothly swear ;
Was ever scene so sad and fair . '

Melrose Abbey is one of the finest Border abbeys. The history of the abbey involves many famous figures , inluding St Cuthbert , King David I and King Robert the Bruce , and King Richard II of England .

The foundation of Melrose Abbey in 1136 was part of King David's major reorganisation of the Scottish Church .During his reign , David set up 15 major religious houses , including the Border Abbeys of Kelso , Jedburgh and Melrose . Dryburgh was founded by David's Constable , Hugh de Moreville .

King David invited the Cistercians from Rievaulx Abbey in Yorkshire to build a house at Melrose , and he ensured the prosperity of the new monastery by ample endowments of land and other assets.
