The Priory of Our Lady, Walsingham


The Society of St Margaret was founded by John Mason Neale in 1855 in East Grinstead. In  1947 three Sisters from the house in Haggerston moved to Walsingham to form a house to help at the Shrine of Our Lady.

The Sisters are a Traditional Anglican Community whose daily life is centred on the Eucharist and the daily Office, from which flows our growing involvement in the ministry of healing, and reconciliation in the Shrine, the local parishes and the wider Church. We welcome guests in our guest house for short periods of rest, relaxation and retreat, and are available to pilgrims and visitors. We also work in the Education Department in the Shrine

Please note that as the Chapel forms part of our House it has been decided that this building will not be open for others to use for private prayer or for public worship for the foreseeable future.

The Sisters will continue to say all the Offices and Mass will be in private.

Our chapel will remain locked until further notice.


We are pleased to annouce that our guest cottage will re-open on 25th July. We have had to put in extra precautions to enable this, for July and August these include only having groups from one household or bubble. These precautions will be kept under review and may be changed as the situation changes. Please note the Priory chapel and Priory remain shut to visitors.


The Priory Dedication Festival due to be held on 14th May and St Margaret's Festival due to be held on 23rd July have been cancelled.
