Hidden in deep woodland on the banks of the river Coquet, Brinkburn Priory is a surprising place to find one of the finest early Gothic priory buildings in England. The church, begun about 50 years after the priory’s foundation in 1135 as a house for Augustinian canons, is the only complete surviving building of the monastery.
After the Dissolution, parts of the monastic buildings were adapted to form an elegant manor house, which remained a family home until 1953: features of the original monastery can still be traced in its walls. The church became the parish church, and after years of neglect was sympathetically restored to its former glory in the mid-19th century.
This guidebook brings together the full history of Brinkburn, and takes the visitor on a tour of the church, priory remains and manor house.
