Dale Abbey, also known as the Abbey of Stanley Park, was a religious house, close to Ilkeston in Derbyshire. Its ruins are located at the village of Dale Abbey, which is named after it. Its foundation legend portrays it as developing from a hermitage, probably in the early 12th century. After several false starts, it was finally constituted as an abbey in 1204. It was affiliated to the Premonstratensians (also called Norbertines and White Canons), an order of canons regular in which it played, at times, a leading part among English Houses. It acquired a large number of small properties, concentrated in areas of the East Midlands, developed a network of granges and appropriated a number of lucrative parish churches. Its discipline and reputation varied considerably, particularly in the 15t

  • Dale Abbey, also known as the Abbey of Stanley Park, was a religious house, close to Ilkeston in Derbyshire. Its ruins are located at the village of Dale Abbey, which is named after it. Its foundation legend portrays it as developing from a hermitage, probably in the early 12th century. After several false starts, it was finally constituted as an abbey in 1204. It was affiliated to the Premonstratensians (also called Norbertines and White Canons), an order of canons regular in which it played, at times, a leading part among English Houses. It acquired a large number of small properties, concentrated in areas of the East Midlands, developed a network of granges and appropriated a number of lucrative parish churches. Its discipline and reputation varied considerably, particularly in the 15th century, and it seems to have fallen away from the originally austerity. By 1536 its income was well below the threshold set for the Dissolution of Lesser Monasteries. Although there were accusations of grave immorality, the abbey was allowed to pay a fine to continue its existence until 1538. (en)

Videt autem et ex diversis gentium nationibus homines venientes et Crucem illam devotissime adorantes. Expergefactus homo et a sompno evigilans convocatis suis narravit eis visionem a Domino sibi revelatam adiecitque et ait Vere dilectissimi vallis ista quani subter nos cernitis et monti huic contigue adjacet locus sanctus est. Vere inquit Dominus est in loco illo et ego nesciebam. Filii qui nascentur et exurgent enarrabunt filiis suis magnalia que operabitur Dominus in valle ista. Vallis inquit ista virtutum floribus erit dealbata plena deliciis et amenitate. Venient enim prout mihi est revelatum de diversis nationibus.

  • "And whilst he slept he sees in his dreams a golden cross standing in the place where our Church is now founded, whose top touched the heavens; while the extremities of the arms reached on either side to the ends of the earth ; from the greatness of whose splendour the whole world shone brightly. He sees, moreover, men of divers nations of people coming and adoring that cross most devoutly. The man being aroused, and waking from his sleep, having called together his companions, told them the vision revealed to him by the Lord ; and he added and said, " Truly, most beloved, this vale which ye behold below us, and which lies touching this hill, is a holy place. Truly," he said, " the Lord is in this place and I knew it not. Children which shall be born and grow up, shall narrate to their children the great and wonderful things which the Lord will perform in that vale. That vale," said he, "shall be white with the flowers of virtues and full of delight and happiness: for they shall come, as it has been revealed to me, from divers nations to adore the Lord in this vale, and to serve Him until the end of time itself for a succession of ages."
