King David I founded a Tironensian (or reformed Benedictine) Abbey at Selkirk in 1113 while his father, Malcolm III, was still on the throne
In 1128, the community moved to Kelso and began work on the abbey whose remains are visible today. Judging from the different styles on view in the remains, the Abbey Church took over 75 years to build.
