Information


Birkenhead Priory was founded about 1150 by Hamon de Masci, 3rd Baron of Dunham Massey for the Benedictine Order. It was visited twice by Edward I due to its strategic importance, being close to the Irish Sea as well as the Welsh border.

It is the oldest standing building on Merseyside.

St Mary’s Tower was originally part of Birkenhead’s first parish church, opened in 1821 in the grounds of the priory.
