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.

We welcome families and encourage picnics in the grounds if the weather is fine.

Please follow parking instructions on site.

History sheets and a children's activity pack will be available.
