Easter eggs, Wentworth & Monk Bretton priory

This beautiful weather has meant more outdoor visits, so enabling us to continue with our travelogue of places to visit around the South Yorkshire area that are disability friendly.

While the mainly girls trip went to Wentworth, the boys went exploring at Monk Bretton Priory and for those not at Social Eyes the Green Team went out delivering Easter eggs and Easter activity packs.

The Priory of Monk Bretton was founded in the year 1154 and belonged, as with St Johns, to the mighty, French order of Cluny, whose members followed the Rule of St Benedict, from the 6th Century. Barnsley MBC’s Museums Education Officer has put together a multi-media education program to help schoolchildren learn more about the priory. There are information panels, edited by English Heritage, on site for daytime visitors.
