The history of Delapré Abbey

Once there was a meadow, close to the River Nene and outside the medieval walls of Northampton. 900 years ago, a community of nuns came to these quiet meadows to create their nunnery – the Abbey of St. Mary de la Pré. Following the rules of the Cluniac order, these nuns formed one of only two Cluniac Nunneries in medieval England, and owed their allegiance to the great Abbey of Cluny in France.
