Presumably the remains of Baysdale Abbey have been incorporated into the current dwellings?
The houses, on the site of the medieval Baysdale Abbey
The road to Baysdale Abbey passes over splendid tiny medieval (though restored and strengthened) bridge over Baysdale Beck.
A depression (filled with water) carved into a rock where prehistoric man ground the grain-corn/wheat? This one is found on the north-west moorland above Baysdale, near where the road from Kildale turns down sharp left, and a about 100m on the right on the Cleveland Way footpath.
Lots of wild bluebells and old oak trees by Baysdale Beck near the farm at Baysdale Abbey.
