Type: Parks, Outdoors
Owner description: 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.

Good parking and well laid out. Information boards are useful and informative. Wedding photos were being taken during our visit and the grounds are certainly picturesque.

The Priory Park members and organisers have created a "little gem" of a place, not only for local residents but for those like me who have immigrated to other parts of the West Midlands. As a child I was bought up on the Priory Estate and so Priory Park was our playground. I am a frequent visitor back to the... More

Priory park is a relaxing, well kept and pretty place located by the historic ruins of part of Dudley castle. There is a range of activities organised and the rangers keep the area in good shape. A lovely place to walk the dog or take the children on the play area.

My experiences of Priory Park with its well kept ancient ruins, well-used tennis courts and new pavilion, are all excellent facilities that are welcomed by the local public. Have heard that there are more events planned for later this year, so will be sure to return in due course.
