About

The riverside ruins of an Augustinan Priory are picturesquely set in the beautiful Derwent Valley near the Yorkshire Wolds. Features include a gatehouse bedecked with the heraldry of the De Roos family of Helmsley Castle, and a handsome set of monastic washbasins. On-site interpretation includes the story of Winston Churchill's secret visit, and Kirkham's role in preparations for D-Day during World War II.
