About

The ruins of this priory in the Tees valley are dominated by the dramatic skeleton of the 14th century church's east end, an outstanding example of early Gothic architecture.

One of the first Augustinian priories to be built in England, Gisborough was founded by the Bruce family, ancestors of Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland. The canons rebuilt their church no fewer than three times, and what survives gives us a tantalising glimpse of the priory's former riches.
