Description: Sawley Abbey was an abbey of Cistercian monks in the village of Sawley, Lancashire, in England (and historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire). It existed from 1147 until its dissolution in 1536, during the reign of King Henry VIII of all England, Ireland, and France. Its ruins, which are controlled by English Heritage, are open to the public. Although not an extensive ruin, there are boards on the site that give information regarding the history of the abbey and its former inhabitants. Additionally, parts of the church and refectory can still be seen.

The abbey is a Grade I listed building and Scheduled Ancient Monument.

In March 2009, Sawley Abbey was featured in the first episode of series 3 of the TV series The Tudors.
