Dore Abbey is a superb medieval church at the southern end of Herefordshire's Golden Valley that once served as the church of a Cistercian abbey. The abbey was founded in 1147 by monks from Morimond in France - the only daughter house ever founded by Morimond. The church was begun in 1175 and consecrated one century later.
She is rumoured to lie buried beneath one of platforms at King's Cross/St Pancras rail station
