Lanercost Priory Lanercost Priory English Heritage


The remains of the priory which survived a six month stay from Edward I that nearly bankrupted it and constant use as a military base, and therefore legitimate target from the Scots. The priory finally fell into ruin after the reformation and the dissolution on the monasteries. Today the main part of the Priory is the local parish church, but behind it are the remains of the chapter house, cloister and refectory.
