Library and Sacristy at Byland

Byland Abbey was founded in 1177 by monks from Furness in Cumbria (although the earliest buildings probably date back to c. 1165). The Library and Sacristy are located in the space between the south transept of the abbey church and the chapter house (on the east side of the cloister).
