Lanercost Priory, Cumbria

The Augustinian Lanercost Priory lies in a beautiful Valley close to Hadrian's Wall, It suffered frequent attacks during the long Anglo-Scottish wars, once by Robert Bruce in person. The mortally sick King Edward I rested here for five months in 1306-7, shortly before his death on his final campaign. The 13th-century church survives to its full height at the east end with a dramatic triple tier of arches. The  building continues as the parish church but just the north aisle has been reroofed and  used.
