Next door to the priory the church I see worth a visit. Excellent displays tell the story of the priory and the Howard’s.

We were visiting Lanercost Priory and entered the church as it was the nave of the priory originally. It was free to enter but donations are accepted. It was very peaceful and there were several old stained glass windows.

Small church beside the priory ruins. Free to enter and has a small donation fee for photos. Quiet area and includes some good historical information inside.

If you visit Lanercost Priory, don't miss out on a visit to this church. Admission is free and it offers peace and tranquility away from the hubbub of the outside world. With Gregorian Chant in the background you step back in time. There is some...More
