Coldingham Priory

About This Route

The atmospheric ruins of Coldingham Priory represent nearly 1,000 years of unbroken worship. A church was founded here in 1098 by King Edgar I of Scotland, possibly on the site of an earlier Anglo-Saxon monastery. The church grew into a priory that was largely detroyed by Cromwell’s forces in the 17th century. There is a small car park and an accessible path to explore this site.
