Day 28 - Jedburgh Abbey 3.jpg

Jedburgh Abbey. Apparently the English in their many disputes with the Scottish would almost always start by attacking Jedburgh. During Henry VIII's reign the Abbey suffered it's greatest destruction. Yet part of the Abbey continued to be used by the locals into the 19th Century, until a new church was built. Again well worth a visit if for nothing else than to get a feel for the sheer magnitude of the place.
