The activities we like best!

‘The leap of faith definitely – it was awesome! I liked the canoeing too. Rock climbing particularly when Andy our instructor started singing and the rain came down – It stopped raining when he stopped singing!!!!!’ so say Year 6 children from Branton St Wilfreds Primary School in Doncaster about their visit this week

Did you know…..

The artist JMW Turner visited Marrick Priory in 1816 on his way to Richmond – He sketched the Priory from the east and his sketches and paintings can still be viewed today – so if you are in the area during August, call in when you see our sign that we are open to the public and see the views that inspired Turner all those years ago!

Fun at the Strawberry Tea!

Last Sunday, saw our annual Strawberry Tea event taking place in the lovely warm sunshine. Hosted by the Friends of Marrick Priory, a great afternoon was spent, drinking tea, eating strawberries and home baked scones, listening to Reeth Brass Band playing and to the more fearless amongst us, climbing the Jacobs ladder and taking a leap of faith! All proceeds from the tea go towards our bursary fund enabling children and young people from families experiencing financial hardship to enjoy a residential with us. Thanks to everyone who came along and contributed to the success of the event.  A fantastic £423 was raised from the day

Join us on Friday 22nd July!

On Friday 22nd July, we are hosting a cream tea between 2pm and 4pm at the Priory – plants and home made cakes will be on sale. So come along and find out more about the Priory’s history and development – See you there!
