Ruins of Ellerton Priory
Ruins of Ellerton Priory
It was a good vantage point to see the remains of the priory church from moorland that was once owned by the nuns.
It was a small Cistercian nunnery dedicated to St. Mary, and founded in around 1200. The priory was surrendered in 1536 and formally dissolved in 1537.
Recent surveys have indicated that the site had the usual layout of a monastic house, with the church forming the north range of a cloister, the whole enclosed within an inner court with the precinct beyond. The church now includes a rectangular, aisleless nave, chancel and west tower. The earliest parts date to the 13th century, but the majority belongs to the 15th, with some remodelling carried out in the 19th century.
The two trees growing within the bounds of the nave are a Cedars and were planted when the ruin was gentrified in the 19thC as it was incorporated into the garden of Ellerton Priory House.
