Brainshaugh Priory


The priory ruins are located by a tight bend in the River Coquet at Brainshaugh, near Guyzance, in Northumberland. It was originally St Wilfrid's Premonstratensian nunnery, founded 1147-52 AD, by Richard Tison. Following probable abandonment, because of the Black Death, it later became a Premonstratensian cell of Alnwick Abbey.[1] The ruins are Grade II* listed.
