Marrick Priory - Benedictine Nuns 1155
Seven miles west-southwest of Richmond

Marrick Priory Barely a mile down the road from Ellerton is Marrick Priory, positioned on the opposite side of the River Swale. The church looks complete but, though the tower is that originally built back in the 13th century, the rest was re-erected in 1811. Ruins of the medieval chancel survive to the east, including 14th century window tracery and a sedilia. Today the complex is a Diocesan Youth Centre. It can be viewed from the adjoining footpaths or, at a distance, from the B6270 across the valley.

The site is on private land, not open to the public. It can, however, be viewed from the road or adjoining footpaths.
