This information plaque, installed in 1996 by Selby Civic Society, marks the traditional site where Benedict, the founder abbot of Selby Abbey, built his first wooden church shortly after he landed in Selby on his mission from Auxerre in France in 1069. Burial artifacts found here are also described.
