Lanercost Priory, founded in 1166 and disbanded during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the reign of Henry VIII. Edward I stayed at Lanercost in 1307 during one of his journeys to fight the Scots but he was too ill to continue and died shortly afterwards at Burgh by Sands on the Solway coast. A monument to him can be found near the priory.
