Kirkstall Abbey was completed between 1152 and 1182, the Abbey still stands substantially to its full height, the massive structure presenting a unique example of early Cistercian architecture. Although its community was disbanded in 1539, Kirkstall Abbey has continued to attract the attention of increasing numbers of visitors, for no other building so completely illustrates this early period of English monastic life.
