Mount Grace  North Riding


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Mount Grace like this:

MOUNT-GRACE, a ville in East Harlsey parish, N. R. Yorkshire; 5½ miles NNE of Northallerton. A Carthusian priory was founded here, in 1396, by the Duke of Surrey; and has left considerable remains. The site is romantic, and gloomily secluded; and is overhung, on the SE, by a lofty wooded hill. The church was cruiform; and considerable portions of it, with remains of a central square tower, of decorated English date, still exist. A portion of the domestic buildings also, but of Tudor date, still remains. Ruins of a chapel, founded in 1515, are on a wooded mountain, to the E.
