Covid 19 update

Following the Prime Minister’s latest statement on the 22nd of September 2020 we would like to reassure our visitors that Gisborough Priory remains open as normal from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Wednesdays to Sundays and will remain open until we are due to close on the 1st of November 2020, other cirumstances permitting.

Prebooking is not required, although we have had to change the way we do various other things.

These are:

  • Using the track and trace system either through the NHS COVID-19 App or by giving your contact details to the custodian on duty.
  • There are no toilets on site. There are public toilets in the Northgate car park (about 5 minutes walk) and many cafes, pubs and bars in the town centre remain open.
  • The Priory is a large site and there should be little difficulty in maintaining a safe distance generally. However, the entrance and exit are still both via the narrow door next to the parish church. Visitors must ensure, when approaching the door, that social distancing is maintained.
  • Visitors are not allowed into the Custodian’s Office. There are instructions on site as to how to contact the Custodian if the Custodian is in the hut or elsewhere on the site.
  • We are not allowed to give you leaflets. However, you can download our leaflet with a map of the site, highlighting points of interest, free of charge.
  • The official English Heritage guidebook to Gisborough Priory is available to buy on site. The cost is £3.50 and we only accept cash payments currently. The guide book may also be purchased from Guisborough Book Shop on Chaloner Street, in the town centre, or online from English Heritage.

Other than that the Priory remains open as usual and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Snowdrop Sunday & Mosaic Unveiling

Yesterday the Mayor of Guisborough, Alma Thrower, unveiled the 900th anniversary mosaic in Gisborough Priory. Among the special guests were Helen Gaunt and Derek Mosey (the artists who designed the mosaic), Sally Wilson (English Heritage) and Lord Gisborough.

An appreciative crowd of visitors was full of admiration for the mosaic and found out more about its design from Christine Clarke (secretary of Gisborough Priory Project).

This was our first open day of 2020 and the sun came out to welcome over 400 visitors who braved the windy conditions to admire not only the mosaic, but also the thousands of snowdrops and other spring flowers in the woodland gardens.

Refreshments were available to visitors as well as snowdrops and winter aconites sold by Mike Heagney. Almost £480 was raised from refreshment sales and visitor donations – a wonderful start to the year.

Signs of Spring

Volunteers have been busy working in the gardens today, getting ready for Snowdrop Sunday and the re-opening of the Priory in March.

And there are plenty of signs that Spring is on the way…

Mosaic installed

The special mosaic created by the local community to commemorate the 900th anniversary of Gisborough Priory was installed in the Priory recently and looks marvellous.

The design features many elements from the Priory’s history in a colourful and lively design.

You will be able to see the mosaic when Gisborough Priory reopens in 2020 – the first event will be Snowdrop Sunday on 23 February.
