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. « less

Always a lovely green space, Priory Park has been transformed in the last year by the careful investment of improvements funding. New loos and pavillion are lavish, and well sited wooden benches make lovely paces to rest. Hedges and lawns beautifully re-layed, and highly appropriate art, such as sculptures and tiling abound. Beyond Priory hall is an even greener space... More

Well looked after park and ruins, well worth a visit. We walk around every morning with our dog (cleaning up after her if needed as we go) Staff are friendly and always tidying or gardening. Look for yourself.

This is a beautiful park in the centre of Dudley with the ruins of a priory at one end. We spent a couple of hours playing hide and seek tag around the ruins and then went to the swings area.

Although not the most gracious park in the borough priory park has a touch of history and presence dating back hundreds of years.The old priory ruins once lived in by monks still stands erect gracefully in the sunlight, keeping a secret air of astoundment at what its achieved and seen through the ages,its stone structure is full of character and...

Apart frm a small ruin (which is great for wedding photos) there is nothing on priory park to warrant travelling to make a visit. Not much more you can say really, couple of tennis courts and a small play area and some grass.
