Mount Grace Priory

Photograph Gallery

Mount Grace Priory in North Yorkshire is a Carthisian Priory that was founded in 1398 by Thomas Holland, Duke of Surrey. It is the best preserved of all England's nine Carthusian priories. The cloisters were surrounded by individual 'cells' for the Monks that were actually very comfortable houses with gardens. One of these has been reconstructed. The site is owned and cared for by English Heritage and the National Trust and can be visited at reasonable times.
