Priory Park Gates (Prittlewell)

Priory Park Gates form the main entrance to the lovely Priory Park in Prittlewell, the old village which is now a suburb of Southend.

The gates are in Victoria Avenue, at the bottom of the hill and beside the Prittle Brook.

Priory Park contains the mediaeval Prittlewell Priory, which was bought along with its grounds by the local jeweller and philanthropist R. A. Jones in 1917, and given to the people of Southend as a public park.

The ornate Priory Park Gates were opened by the Duke of York, later to be George VI, in 1920.

Guided Walks led by Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby start by the gates.
