1. Bridlington - Priory Church (exterior and history) and the Old Town and High Street
Bridlington - Priory Church: One of the 'Norman' doors of the Priory Church in Bridlington Old Town - much weathered and eroded after nearly 800 years.
Bridlington - Priory Church: An Augustian Priory was founded on the site of the present church by Walter-le-Grant and the monastery grew over the centuries to become quite a large complex of buildings. The Priory was dissolved in 1539.
Bridlington - Priory Church: A model of the monastic buildings as they would have been around 1535.
The Bayle Gatehouse, of two storeys, is the only monastic building to survive and licenses to crenellate the priory date from 1388, so its pretty old! The lower section is stone blocks and the upper sections in brick.
The Baylegate gateway houses the Bayle Museum.
Bridlington - Priory Church: The magnificent building of Bridlington Priory Church with its two towers - both were extended in 1862 under the guidance of the architect Sir Gilbert Scott who supervised major restoration work. The north-west tower (shorter left) was built in the 13th century. The south-west tower (taller right) restored an then rebuilt by Scott in 1876 is Perpendicular in style.
PLEASE leave a donation for the upkeep of this lovely old medieval church - after all, entry is free!
Bridlington - Priory Church: View of the church from the east end looking west to the towers.
Bridlington - Priory Church: The story of Bridlington Priory is told in a series six pairs of lovely tapestries set out in the north aisle.
The High Street in Bridlington Old Town.
Bridlington Old Town: There are several tearooms, cafes and fish and chip shops on the 'old' high street e.g. the Georgian Rooms tearoom-cafe and antiques centre and Gabby's Old Town Fisheries, the 'oldest traditional fish fryers in town'!
