Grace's very special treasure!
Mount Grace Priory was founded in 1398 by the hermit-like Carthusian order. They are the best preserved ruins of their kind in the country and together with the surrounding grounds have become a haven for wildlife. The old priory guest-hall was converted into a grand manor house by Thomas Lascelles in 1654 - making it one of the few major buildings constructed in Yorkshire during the time of Cromwell's Commonwealth. It was extended by the wealthy industrialist Sir Lowthian Bell at the turn of the 20th century, and refurbished in the style of the Arts and Crafts movement.
Location & Admission: Mount Grace Priory is off the A19 and open 10am to 4pm daily from Thursday to Sunday, inclusive.
