Selby Abbey is a beautiful and historic part of the town. Built in 1069, it has survived almost 1000 years and is still open to visitors to this day. One of its most famous features is the original 14th century Washington Window. It contains the Washington family coat of arms, which was the model for the American flag. You can visit the Abbey from 10am to 3pm each day, and you can attend weekly reflection, bible readings and prayers on Sundays. The Abbey also hosts weddings, baptisms and funerals.
The Selby Railway Swing Bridge was built in 1889, and is another local favourite. A stretch of the bridge has a moveable span of about 40 metres, which allows boats to pass by underneath. Otherwise, it is part of the railway line and lies just north of the Selby Railway Station. It has been recently refurbished to fix an issue with rails not aligning properly when the bridge was closed.
