The Priory at Scorton History

With parts of the building dating back to 1650, The Priory weathered the storm of the reformation to become a blacksmiths, boys school and more recently a country inn before being transformed into the boutique hotel, cafe bar and restaurant it is today. The original part of the building was a Catholic Chapel (the stone cross and Orb can still be seen above the bakery entrance). It was built as a Chapel for people travelling to the Catholic church at Garstang as there no other local Catholic church. Local legend has it that Cromwell's soldiers stayed at The Priory and were so pleased with the Hospitality that they left without harming the Priest, but went on to destroy Greenhalgh Castle in the nearby market town of Garstang.

Scorton is an ideal base from which to explore the Forest of Bowland or for people partaking in local activities such as game shooting, bird watching, fell walking or just a romantic retreat.
