The tranquil setting of Lanercost Priory today belies its turbulent history. It was founded in 1169 (or thereabouts) as an Augustinian monastery and the priory suffered numerous devastating Scottish raids, including one led by Robert the Bruce. Despite being "dissolved" by Henry VIII in 1536 (during the dissolution of the monasteries) parts of the original foundation survive and are in use to this day.
It's open between April and October (10.00-6.00). Adjacent farm buildings have recently been converted into a delightful tearoom, craft gallery and farm shop.
