Selby Horseshoe Walk

'In the centre of town, and known as one of England’s finest Parish Churches, stands the magnificent Selby Abbey. Founded by the Monk Benedict of Auxerre, France in 1069, the main phase of building took place between 1100 & 1230AD. It is clamed that Selby was the birthplace of King Henry I, son of William the Conqueror, who was staying in the town during one of his visits to the north whilst attempting to subdue the rebellious people of York. Henry ascended to the throne in 1100 and reigned for 35 years.'
