Project Details

Mount Grace Priory Café


Brims Construction were appointed as main contractor by English Heritage on a new visitor café that sits within the grounds of Mount Grace Priory, Northallerton, North Yorkshire. The café is sited within metres of the scheduled ancient monument of the original Priory ruins and is part of a larger redevelopment of the grounds by landscape designer Chris Beardshaw. The timber structure accommodates seating for 48 covers, 18 of which are inside and 30 outside, all with views to the ruins and newly replanted orchard, and includes a full commercial kitchen and accessible WC.  The eastern elevation is formed of an oak screen manufactured from unused 30-year-old oak boards, while the slate material for the roof and external walls was sourced from a reclaimed stock of local slate.
