HOOD GRANGE

DESCRIPTION + /

Farmhouse, built on site of former hermitage, known to have existed before 1138. All that now remains of the hermitage are two window heads and stone coffins, built into the walls of a barn. In 1142, monks displaced from Furness Abbey in 1138, were temporarily sent to Hood hermitage before being granted land at Old Byland to build a new Cistercian Abbey. Augustinian canons from Bridlington then settled here while their new abbey at Newburgh was being built, 1143-45. It then became a grange of Newburgh until dissolved in 1539.
