Breaking the Rule – Monkish Misconduct
2.00 pm, Hyde Abbey Gateway
Devised and led by Anna Withers

As well as touring the Abbey site, this walk includes a fascinating insight into a part of Abbey life that is quite different from the usual, expected, fairly austere round of quiet devotion, prayer and study. Included in this tour is the story of Hyde Abbey fighting with the Bishop as they took different sides in the civil war for the throne between William the Conquerer’s quarrelling grandchildren Stephen and Matilda. Hear too how two future bishops at least were to officially admonish the Abbots for their monks’ decidedly un-pious behaviour!
