OSMOTHERLEY

Taking its name from the Saxon prince Osmund, Osmotherley lies just a few miles from the Cleveland Hills and the picturesque Osmotherley Moor. It stands at the start of the challenging 40-mile Lyke Wake Walk to Ravenscar. John Wesley preached here by the town’s cross. Nearby is the ruin of Mount Grace Priory, probably the best-preserved Carthusian house in England. Founded by Thomas Holland, Duke of Surrey, at the end of the 14th century, it was home to ‘silent’ monks who even avoided contact with each other.
