Brainshaugh Priory

Religious Place In Guyzance, Northumberland

Originally St Wilfrid's Premonstratensian nunnery, this ruined priority sits by a tight bend in the River Coquet.

The priory ruins are located by a tight bend in the River Coquet at Brainshaugh, near Guyzance, in Northumberland. It was originally St Wilfrid's Premonstratensian nunnery, founded 1147-52 AD, by Richard Tison. Following probable abandonment, because of the Black Death, it later became a Premonstratensian cell of Alnwick Abbey. The ruins are Grade II* listed. Source -

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue pele tower up a remote hill, a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
