The Friends of Chicksands Priory have been together since 1975, with just an 18 month break away while the restoration of the Priory was undertaken.

The Friends are a group of individuals interested in preserving Chicksands Priory, and promoting everything with regards to its history and of the Gilbertine order.

One of their current projects is to reinstate the stained glass back in the entrance hall. It is currently in Audley End House, The stained glass moved to Audley End in the late 1960s and has been there every since, part of it have been used is a large window that is not visible to the visiting public sadly.

The Friends have put a lot of time and effort and love into preserving, and protecting Chicksands Priory, from the early days of cleaning, and making it weather proof.

They take tours and continue to research the history of the Priory, and those who lived or stayed at it.

A museum has evolved where you can see artefacts from the Time Team visit, information about the monastic history, the period of more than 300 years when the Osborn family lived at the Priory, and an exhibit about the RAF and USAF when they were stationed at Chicksands.

If you have stories of your time at Chicksands or have any questions, please get in touch with the Historian.
