Wilmington Priory Open Days 2020

Wilmington, Near Eastbourne

Saturday 12 to Sunday 13 September 2020 - 10am to 4pm and Monday 14 September 2020 10am to 1pm


Wilmington Priory was a cell of the Benedictine Abbey at Grestain in Normandy. It was never a conventional priory with cloister and chapter, the monks prayed in the adjoining parish church where the thousand-year-old yews are testimony to the age of the site. The Priory has been added to and altered in every age and some of it has been lost to ruin and decay, but what is left shows how highly it was once regarded. 

Join historic food demonstrator Kathy Hipperson from Hands on the Past and discover all about the extraordinary art of jelly making in the Georgian period.
