About this event

We are opening this building in association with Heritage Open Days.

Wilmington Priory was a cell of the Benedictine Abbey at Grestain in Normandy. It was never a conventional priory with cloister and chapter, the monks prayed in the adjoining parish church where the thousand-year-old yews are testimony to the age of the site. The Priory has been added to and altered in every age and some of it has been lost to ruin and decay, but what is left shows how highly it was once regarded.

Join historic food demonstrator Kathy Hipperson from Hands on the Past and discover all about the extraordinary art of jelly making in the Georgian period.

Your timed ticket allows you entry into the house but you are welcome to explore the grounds before and after your allotted time slot.

Please note that we will not be serving refreshments and there will be no toilet facilities available during these open days.
