The story behind Sweetheart Abbey

The Abbey was founded by Lady Dervorgilla, who did so in tribute to her beloved husband, John Balliol

 

When he died, she was so distraught she had his heart embalmed, which she kept locked in a box that she carried around with her, every day until she died.

 

When she passed away, she was buried with her husband's heart beside her.
