Photograph Gallery: Lanercost Priory

Lanercost Priory in Cumbria dates from the thirteenth century and was founded by the Augustinians. Edward I wintered here in 1306/07 and it was later attacked by Robert the Bruce. The Priory is now in ruins, apart from the Nave of the Church that is used as the parish church. The ruins are in the care of English Heritage.
