Wetheral Priory Gatehouse
Wetheral Priory Gatehouse
Wetheral Priory, a house of the Benedictine Order, was founded in 1106 from its motherhouse of St. Mary's Abbey, York. The gatehouse is virtually the only standing remnant of the much grander Priory buildings, and was the main entry into the monastic outer court. The building as seen today dates from the 15th century. It has a pair of domestic chambers on two floors above the main entrance way. These may have been accommodation for a Priory Official or guest rooms for visitors or travellers. The Gatehouse is now in the care of English Heritage.
