The Monks’ Dorter at Byland Abbey is located at the south-east corner of the cloister, adjacent to the warming house, and to the south of the chapter house.
The monks’ dayroom was located on the ground floor, and the dorter was placed above. The dayroom was divided into seven bays.
The dorter was reached via the day stairs from the cloister. These were located to the south of the chapter house.
The monks could enter the abbey church though night stairs that entered the west side of the south transept.
