The experience will transport you back to 1537 and the time of the reformation. You’ll be immersed in the story of the Priory’s resident monks, who learnt of King Henry VIII’s plans to send an army to Cartmel to destroy the Priory and made the brave decision to stay and do whatever they could to save their place of worship.
It’s truly an experience not to be missed.
This is one part of an over arching vision for The Priory. The next step is the imminent removal of the nave pews and the relocation of the Victorian font releasing greater flexibility of community space. Whist these improvements are being made the Virtual Reality Experience will only be possible by booking in advance using The Priory website. We do hope that this does not cause any inconvenience and we look forward to welcoming you as you experience the The Young Martyr in the Priory.
