Marrick Priory

Marrick is a village and civil parish in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. Located in the Yorkshire Dales, its main attraction is Marrick Priory, which is now a residential centre for outdoor education. The outdoor centre was converted from disused Priory buildings during the 1960s and has been providing a range of outdoor activities in the Yorkshire Dales for more than 40 years.[2]

The Priory was originally established as a nunnery between 1140-1160.[3]

The famous breeder of racehorses, William Blenkiron was born in Marrick.[4]
