The Pioneering Monks of Birkenhead

Admission £10
Start Time 18:00
End Time 20:00

Join local historian Dr Stephen Roberts and find out more about the history of Birkenhead Priory, the oldest standing building on Merseyside.

It was said that visitors to the remains of the once glorious Birkenhead Priory would not have been aware of its former power and influence:

“They could scarcely recall now the beauty of its former setting. These folk as they stood there looking about them with eyes of interest., could have no idea what the Priory had once been as it stood on its beautiful peninsula, surrounded on three sides by water, a headland of oak and birch and meadow crowned with red sandstone”.

Dr Roberts’ talk will cover the fascinating history of Birkenhead Priory and the influence of the founding fathers, whose estates once extended across the Wirral Peninsula for several miles and included the ancient manor of Claughton.
