Adventurous activity has been an important part of the Priory’s work over the last 40 years. We have sought to enable our visitors both young and old to discover their gifts and unlock their potential. Undertaking adventurous activities together has an uncanny way of teaching us more about ourselves, each other and the natural world we all share.
We have exciting plans to further develop the historical and heritage dimension of our work so we can welcome more diverse groups and broaden our programme of activities.
Over the last few years we have been working with English Heritage, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Diocese of Ripon and Leeds to agree plans for a new hub on the site. We were delighted to be granted planning permission and Scheduled Monument Consent in 2010.
The new building we are planning will play a central role in improving the range of learning experiences that the Priory can offer. We will be able to have better disabled accessible facilities and develop Open Days and Interpretation courses on a wide variety of heritage topics.
It will allow us to open up the Priory to more schools, youth organisations and the public who want to learn more about the history of the Priory and its’ part in the story of the Northern Dales.
We are now busy raising funds to bring our plans to fruition. If you are able to assist or feel able to make a donation then please get in touch.
The Friends of Marrick Priory
The Friends of Marrick Priory generate interest and support for the work of the Priory and its staff, as well as supporting long term fund raising for major items of expenditure.
In order to support the work at Marrick Priory, the Friends:
This work allows regular donations made to the Priory which have been used to support a Bursary Fund, which allows children, who would otherwise not have been able to visit the Priory, to come and enjoy the range of activities offered, and to purchase such things as waterproofs, a kayak trailer, a pool table, and picnic tables.
- Organise fun, social fundraising events throughout the year.
- Offer practical help on Working Party Days with activities such as gardening and decorating.
- Pray for the visitors to the Priory, its staff, trustees and committees.

The Priory is a Charitable Trust and is based on non-profit making principles. We seek to make our fees for visiting groups as reasonable as possible to cover the running costs of the organisation. We believe that every individual should have the opportunity to benefit from a visit to the Priory and we have a Bursary fund to assist individuals who face financial disadvantage. The bursary fund is supported by charitable giving and the fundraising work of the Friends of Marrick Priory.
