Delapré Abbey, is a neo-classical mansion and outbuildings which incorporates the remains of a former monastery in the meadows of the River Nene 1 mile (1.6 km) south south-east of Northampton. The latter institution was founded as a nunnery about the year 1145 devoted to the congregation of the great Abbey of Cluny in Burgundy, France. Its expansive sloping grounds are a nationally-protected Wars of the Roses battlefield, as a one-time site of the advance of the Yorkists during the Battle of Northampton (1460).
