Heritage At Home

Whilst many of our heritage attractions across the district are closed, now is the time to experience some of their online content and take part in some heritage activities at home.

 

Lancaster Priory

  • Prayers and services are live streamed from the inside the historic Grade 1 listed building.  Go to www.lancasterpriory.org for full details and links.

 

  • Lancaster Priory has recently been given the great news that it has been awarded funding towards its Clock Tower renovations which can now take place over the next few months – however its campaign is ongoing to fund further major renovations  and any donations would be gratefully received via JustGiving on the Priory website. People can also sponsor a stone for £10 in memory of a relative or friend. Anyone interested can speak to a staff member at the church or email churchwarden1@gmail.com.
