Tour Scotland Video Jedburgh Abbey Borders

Tour Scotland video of the Abbey on ancestry visit to Jedburgh, Scottish Borders, Scotland. This is a ruined Augustinian abbey which was founded in the 12th century. This Scottish church is built in the Romanesque and early Gothic styles and is remarkably complete. When the Protestant Reformation arrived in 1560, the monks were allowed to stay but the abbey was used as the parish kirk for the reformed religion. In 1671 the church was removed to the western part of the nave for safety reasons. This situation persisted until, in 1871, it was considered unsafe to continue worship at the abbey church and a new parish church was built.
