Description: Priory Park in Dudley takes its name from the Old Priory of St James's...
Priory Park in Dudley takes its name from the Old Priory of St James's. The ruins are from the Cluniac Priory and are the picturesque feature in the grounds of the park. The Priory was first founded by the Lord of Dudley, Gervase Paganell, in the 12th Century, and was closed by the infamous Henry VIII in the 1530's. The pools near The Priory were drained when Priory Hall was built in 1825. During the 1930's, The Priory were restored to their current form, and the grounds became a park.

The priory is a quiet and peaceful place to visit. It's used by the local register office for wedding photos with its pleasant backdrop of the old ruins, it's also a great place to visit whilst walking the dog or maybe enjoying a picnic, definitely worth a visit

We stumbled across this place after reaching trip advisor to find a place to eat lunch. The ruins of a priory stand in beautifully kept parkland with main roads all round. Trees, flowers, open space. Great recreation place, peace and quiet. Very nice and unusual to see in the middle of roads and housing.

Recently returned to live in Dudley and took advantage of the wild and windy day to take a walk to Priory Park in the heart of Dudley. I was pleasantly surprised to see the renovations, new pathways and smart buildings, including the Pavilion and the shelter near the pond. So very lovely and made me feel good about being in...

I've always like the look of this park and the ruins of the abbey add a bit off that gothic ghostly look that makes this place one of the best spot in Dudley.

I use this park regularly as it has so much to offer. A secure play area for children, pitches for football, beautiful recently restored historic ruins by way of a well spent £2mil lottery fund, which are fun for the younger ones to not only play around but educational and interesting for them to see and feel history before their...

Compared to where this park was a few years ago, this really is a brilliant space. The restoration works are great, I really liked the paving and tiles in the priory and the herb garden area just looks great in what used to be grass. The works to the pavilion have made a lovely space to learn about the history... More
