Gisborough Priory is a ruined Augustinian priory in Guisborough in the borough of Redcar and Cleveland and ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. It was founded in 1119 as the Priory of St Mary by the Norman feudal magnate Robert de Brus, also an ancestor of the Scottish king, Robert the Bruce. It became one of the richest monastic foundations in England with grants from the crown and bequests from de Brus, other nobles and gentry and local people of more modest means. Much of the Romanesque Norman priory was destroyed in a fire in 1289. It was rebuilt in the Gothic style on a grander scale over the following century. Its remains are regarded as among the finest surviving examples of early Gothic architecture in England.

  • Gisborough Priory is a ruined Augustinian priory in Guisborough in the borough of Redcar and Cleveland and ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. It was founded in 1119 as the Priory of St Mary by the Norman feudal magnate Robert de Brus, also an ancestor of the Scottish king, Robert the Bruce. It became one of the richest monastic foundations in England with grants from the crown and bequests from de Brus, other nobles and gentry and local people of more modest means. Much of the Romanesque Norman priory was destroyed in a fire in 1289. It was rebuilt in the Gothic style on a grander scale over the following century. Its remains are regarded as among the finest surviving examples of early Gothic architecture in England. The priory prospered until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1540, when it was abolished along with England's other monastic communities. The priory buildings were demolished and the stone re-used in other buildings in Guisborough. The east end of the priory church was left standing with its great window forming a distinctive arch, a well-known landmark used as a symbol for Guisborough. It became part of the estate of the Chaloner family, who acquired it in 1550. The east window was preserved by them as part of a Romantic vista adjoining their seat, Gisborough Hall, from which the priory takes its idiosyncratically spelled name. It is owned by the Chaloners but is in the care of English Heritage as a scheduled monument. Since the 19th century archaeological excavations have taken place in the priory grounds, though a substantial part of the site has not yet been investigated. In addition to the east window, surviving visible fragments of the complex include the lower courses of the west range, a vaulted undercroft, a gateway and a 14th-century dovecote still in use today. The adjoining Priory Gardens, laid out by the Chaloners in the 18th century, are under restoration by a volunteer group. The priory ruins and gardens are open to the public throughout the year. (en)
  • El priorato de Gisborough fue fundado en 1119 por Robert Bruce, un ancestro del rey escocés Roberto I y fue hogar de una comunidad de agustinos. El priorato se encuentra en Guisborough, ahora en el distrito municipal de Redcar y Cleveland y en el condado ceremonial de Yorkshire del Norte, Inglaterra. En el edificio fueron enterrados el segundo, cuarto y quinto señores de Annandale. El edificio fue destruido durante la disolución de los monasterios durante el siglo XVI y sus piedras fueron usadas en otros edificios del lugar, como la iglesia anglicana de San Nicolás. Lo único que queda es su fachada este con su gran ventanal y sus arcadas, una referencia en el paisaje que usada a menudo como un símbolo de la localidad. En el siglo XVIII, el arco fue usado como telón de fondo para los magníficos jardines creados por la familia Chaloner en las tierras al sur del priorato. El Gisborough Priory Project (Proyecto priorato de Gisborough), un grupo de voluntarios locales, intenta recuperar dichos jardines, que mantienen largos macizos de flores desde julio de 2004. Actualmente, el priorato está a cargo de de English Heritage. Una leyenda local dice que un fantasma, conocido como el monje negro o el monje de la capucha negra, se aparece en el lugar en la primera luna nueva de cada año. (es)
