An afternoon at Worksop Priory

Spend an afternoon enjoying a guided tour
of the church, its gatehouse and the site of the ancient Augustinian Priory.

Venue: Worksop Priory, Priorswell Rd, Worksop, Nottinghamshire S80 2LJ

An impressive restoration programme has just ended resulting in a breath-taking transformation of the town’s 12th century Norman Church.

A thousand year old wall carving…a 17th Century Fox’s Book of Martyrs hidden within its walls.. and much else to learn about. Find the 14th century Crusader Crosses and the 15th century skull from the battle of the War of the Roses.. a Gateford girl’s part in the execution of Henry Vlll’s fifth wife Catherine Howard.

No need to book – just come along and enjoy an afternoon here at the Priory. The Prioy don’t charge admission but will ask for a donation if you have enjoyed your time there, otherwise it’s free.
