Today we were joined by Bishop Helen-Ann Hartley for the opening of our new Outdoor Classroom. Though not dressed in her usual ceremonial attire Bishop Helen did come equipped with her purple wellies. As well as opening the Outdoor Classroom she was also able to have her first try at archery. This was followed by a soup and pudding lunch back in the main Priory building. The occasion was also attend by the Reeth Walking Group, Friends of Marrick Priory and the Leyburn Arts and Community Centre Walking Group.
The Outdoor Classroom is situated away from the main buildings down by the river, next to the High Ropes Course and Archery Range. It is a fully enclosed structure that can accommodate around 20 people. The Outdoor Classroom is available for use by both residential groups and day groups.
