A beautiful location with free access onto the Abbey grounds.
The Abbey was founded in the 12th century, was purchased by Lord Byron’s (the poet) ancestor Sir John Byron of Colwick. In the 18th century a magnificent landscape setting was created in front of the entrance. This included the lake guarded by ” forts” where the 5th Lord Byron (the wicked lord) and his sailor brother ”Fair Weather Jack” (the poets grandfather) held Mock battles. The house then fell into disrepair and was eventually sold (1817) .It was sold again in 1925 and the abbey and grounds were given to the City of Nottingham in 1931.
