Worksop Priory

About

Believed to have been in existence since Anglo Saxon times, this unique market town in the north of Nottinghamshire is aptly dubbed the ‘gateway to the Dukeries’. This influence is even reflected in the town centre.

At Bridge Street and Bridge Place – the heart of Worksop’s thriving retail community – coloured stone is set into the paving on the pedestrian streets, depicting the local heraldic crests. There is also a paved maze featuring a heraldic lion and unicorn, giving the town a sense of real historical character.

The Augustian Priory of St Cuthbert and St Mary was founded in 1103 and the surviving part consists of the nave, western front and twin towers, built in the late 12th century. Further information about heritage sites in Worksop town centre can be found via the Worksop Heritage Trail.

Markets in Worksop are being held Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
