Explore 900 years of history, visit the medieval priory and woodland gardens, and get involved with this local charity. 

We are pleased to say that we will be reopening to the public on the 3rd March 2021. As before we will be open from 10:00 to 16:00 Wednesdays to Sundays.

Initially we can only open for local residents to exercise.
However, from the 8th March, people will be allowed to leave home for recreation and exercise outdoors with their household or support bubble, if they are eligible for one, or with one person from outside their household.

This means that, from the 8th March, you can visit us for recreation, not just exercise, and with one person from outside of your household or support bubble, provided you maintain social distancing.

Unlike many other historic sites you do not need to pre-book to visit us, although you should be aware that our entrance is very narrow and you should respect other people’s well-being when approaching from either side.

You will still be required to track and trace on entering the Priory grounds, either by using the NHS app or by leaving names and numbers with us.

We have changed the way in which you leave your name, if you do not use the NHS app, and the custodians will no longer need to approach you for your details. Please refer to the notices inside the entrance.

We are extremely pleased to be reopening and look forward to seeing you, albeit from a safe distance!
