The Monastery aims to be Open Every Day between 11am- 4pm (except Saturdays) with free entry & free parking. Visitors are most welcome to call in between 11 and 4pm and visit the Heritage Corner but we cannot guarantee that the Great Nave will always be available.

Special Heritage & Visitor Open Days are held all year round on every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday when the Great Nave, Café & Shop are usually open between 11 and 4pm. Tours and talks can also be pre-booked on these open days. Please note, there will be no access to the Nave on Sunday 23rd June due to the Music Action International Concert (our Sunday Taste of The Monastery Tour in June will take place on Sunday June 30th). The Friary and Victorian Pantry will remain open as usual on these days.

January 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

£5 £5

Earth School is exploration of Life from another viewpoint. Working with the Knowledge of the Ancients we will discover how our lives are enhanced by sharing their knowledge and experience.

January’s Earth School session on Sunday 20th will focus on ‘The Spine of Albion’

A north-south energetic axis of Britain, the Belinus & Elan lines, which intertwine from the south coast of England to the north coast of Scotland, discovered through a 15 year quest by Gary Biltcliffe & Caroline Hoare. The Spine links six major cities, including Manchester and its energy is likened to the Dragon force experienced by ancient indigenous tribes and it aligns to the heavenly realms in the constellation of Cygnus. We will be looking in particular at the section of the Spine that works its way through Cheshire, Manchester and Lancashire.

This Earth School session costs £5 to attend.
