Thicket Priory


Thicket Priory

Thicket Priory is a religious house in Thorganby, North Yorkshire, England which is about 10 km south east of York. (gbmapping|SE697435)

A Cistercian monastery for nuns stood on the site of Thicket Priory from the 12th Century. This was destroyed during the Reformation. There is also evidence of a devotion to ‘Our Lady of Thicket’ dating from this time.

The priory has been re-founded as a Carmelite monastery.
