The church has wonderful history including the links to Hadrian's Wall. The ruins evoke the imagination as to what used to be and the grounds are good to stroll around. Even the cemetary at the rear steeped in history and memories is a moving location

Lanercost is a charming place with an impressive, solid edifice. The austerity of the functional church is a good contrast with what your imagination can do with the remains of the medieval Augustinian Priory. It’s fun to find the bits of Hadrian’s Wall that had...More

What a beautiful old Church steeped in History and used to this day. The Priory near the Church really gives you a sense of what it could have been like when it was occupied, unfortunately the dormitories have disappeared however the undercroft showing the vaulted...More

Hello, I wonder if you could help me solve a 20 year mystery? Sometime in the 90's on a glorious summer's day we visited the delightful ruins of what I think may have been Lanercost Priory. The memory has always stayed with me but I have never been entirely sure of the exact location of this memory. I associate the memory (maybe incorrectly) with a weekend spent at the Brampton Folk Festival, hence my speculation that it could have been Lanercost. I remember it being very beautiful and incredibly peaceful but the what impressed me most of all was when we peeped into the nearby church, not intending to enter as we were accompanied by our much-loved (and now deceased) cocker spaniels. We were immediately beckoned forward and ushered in, the 'greeter' insisting most warmly that ALL were welcome here even those with 4 legs. I have never forgotten this most special and inclusive church. Please could you tell me if I am correct in thinking that it may have been Lanercost. Very best regards, Bernice

Bernice A further thought is that if you call up Google maps you can link to selection of photos of the Priory which may just confirm your memories, or maybe not! It is worth a try.John C.
