Mount Grace Priory, House and Gardens sits at the foot of the Cleveland Hills in North Yorkshire where the Carthusian priory sits alongside Arts and Crafts gardens. Its grounds are also home to a famous stoat colony.
The Arts and Crafts gardens have recently been renovated under the direction of Chris Beardshaw, and the reconstructed monk’s cell garden has also received a makeover, being faithfully re-planted using extensive research of medieval herbs and gardens.
Our scheme includes a family Explorer Pack to encourage exploration, play and communication around the priory, orchard and gardens. Internal and external interpretation panels, hand-held interpretive boards, seasonal garden leaflets, blackboards and Sammy the Stoat disks to spot on benches around the grounds are light touch interpretive additions that enhance the experience for visitors of all ages.
Bivouac commissioned Nick Ellwood to complete the scheme with his sensitive and characterful illustrations.
