Conishead Priory

Conishead Priory dates from the the 1100’s and is located on some 70 acres of wooded land. It includes significant beachfront and extensive gardens. You can read the early history by clicking on the first picture and then clicking on it again to get it full sized.
It is now owned by the New Kadampa Tradition – International Buddhist Union who are meticulously restoring the Priory. They have also built a beautiful Buddhist Temple on the grounds.
I am here for a 2 week Buddhist Festival which includes teachings, meditation and empowerment. It is truly a beautiful place for it and the teachings are inspiring me already. Here are some pictures of the priory. More on the temple and the festival doings in future posts.
