Scope and Content Jedburgh Abbey, Scottish Borders, from south-west This view from the south-west, taken in the mid-20th century, shows the abbey church from the cloister. The nave is on the left, with its south aisle, and the west (left) and east processional doorways. To the right is the ruined south transept. The herbaceous border is on the site of the north side of the cloister. Jedburgh was less badly treated than the other Border abbey churches in the English raids of the later Middle Ages. After the Reformation the transepts and crossing became the parish church, and in 1671 this move into the nave. The vault of the crossing collapsed in 1743. Jedburgh Abbey was founded on the site of a 9th-century church in about 1138, when Augustinian Canons were brought over from France. The choir, crossing and transepts of the abbey church were complete by 1174. The nave had been built by 1220, and the original east end had been reconstructed by 1220.
