The Monastery

A place to find yourself

Take a virtual tour

Please enjoy your time with us when you visit, as you explore this precious heritage site, walk the cloisters and experience our peaceful friary garden. You will discover that The Monastery is a very special place.

Once a Franciscan Church & Friary, described as architect Edward Pugin’s gothic masterpiece. It was deconsecrated when the Franciscans left in 1989 and derelict for many years until it was saved from ruin by local volunteers.

The Monastery still relies heavily on its volunteers and is owned by the very same charitable trust that rescued it over 22 years ago. Profits from events and activities are donated back to the Trust to support ongoing maintenance as well as its charitable projects in arts, health, skills & education.

Just like the Franciscan brothers before us, our mission is to help & support others whenever we can. We have affordable community spaces and meeting rooms available to hire, and are happy to host Sunday community events with like-minded groups.

Thank you
From The Monastery Team

We hope you will visit and experience all that the Monastery has to offer and, when you do, may you take with you the peace & blessings of this precious sacred place.
