Lanercost Priory, England

This evening, I am focusing on Lanercost Priory, a combined ruin and living church near Brampton in Cumbria, England. The site is close to the line of Hadrian’s Wall.

This Priory shares an affinity with abbeys in the Scottish Borders in that the location rendered the Priory a  military target during the intermittent warfare which occurred between England and Scotland, particularly during the 13th and 14th centuries.The building was attacked by Scots in 1296 and then again, in 1311, by King Robert the Bruce of Scotland .
