St Nicholas Priory Community Asset Transfer

In 2016 EHBT embarked on a project to prepare for a community asset transfer of St Nicholas Priory from Exeter City Council to EHBT in order to extend visitor access and community use of this historic building.  This is the west wing of the four-sided priory, and contained the priory kitchen, parlour, guest bedroom, servants’ room and solarium.  It is adjacent to the north refectory wing already owned by EHBT (21 The Mint).

The formal lease transferring the Priory was signed and sealed on 7th September 2018.  For this EHBT Trustee Richard Parker designed a new seal.  Our Chair, David Radstone, resplendent in Tudor costume, received a ceremonial key from the Lord Mayor.
