Lancashire Priory

On a rocky outcrop above the river Lune sitting next to Lancaster Castle is Lancaster Priory.

The carved choir stalls are made of oak and, dating from 1340, are the third oldest in England. Pevsner states that they are "about the most luxuriant canopies in the country" The seats have misericords, some of which have carvings. At the back of the stalls are modern embroidery panels.
