BIDDLESDEN - Biddlesden was home to the former Cistercian Abbey of St Mary and St Nicholas, founded in 1147 by monks from Garendon, Leicestershire. Dissolved in 1538, parts of the abbey were incorporated into a house built by Sir Robert Peckham. Ruins of the Church and Abbey house were still visible in 1712, but the construction of Biddlesden House in the early 18th century resulted in the destruction of the ruins
