Brainshaugh Priory by the River Coquet

  • Description

    "A priory was founded at Brainshaugh in 1147 for nuns who belonged to the Premonstratensian Order. The chapel ruins are still visible, but all other buildings survive only as buried foundations. The source of the river Coquet is in the hills along the Scottish border near Rothbury. It winds through Coquetdale to the North Sea coast at Amble." Photo by Lisa Jarvis, 2007.
