The Rev. Jonathan Bailey, 31 (above), former deputy vicar of a parish in Warrington, has become the first warden of the Young People’s Adventure Centre at Marrick Priory in Swaledale. His wife, Susan, a former domestic science teacher, will be responsible for the housekeeping at the centre.

The Priory, once a twelfth-century Benedictine Nunnery, has been converted into a residential centre for youth organisations and schools for adventure courses and field studies.
