The Scottish Borders region has many spectacular, old abbeys. Jedburgh Abbey is one of the best. The four great abbeys of the Scottish Borders are Melrose, Kelso, Dryburgh, and Jedburgh. Jedburgh Abbey was established, first as a priory, in the year 1138. It was elevated to abbey status not many years later. For religious historians, Jedburgh was an Augustinian abbey. Its location, just ten miles north of the English border, put it frequently in danger of military conflict. That, and the Protestant Reformation of the 1500s brought an end to Jedburgh as a religious institution. Anyone interested in medieval architecture, history, or even just the evocative imaginings of viewing an 800 year old building should not miss a visit to Jedburgh Abbey.
