* Index of Guisborough, Cleveland Scenes *

Guisborough (Gisborough in medieval times) is a friendly busy bustling and growing historic market town. There are lots of new housing developments going on and looks, and is, a much more prosperous town than it used to be thirty years when we first moved into the area.

St Nicholas Church

The Anglican Parish Church of St Nicholas, Guisborough

The Anglican Parish Church of St Nicholas, Guisborough, is situated near the ruins of the Priory. Although medieval in origin, much of the present church in terms of size, style and appearance is due to the rebuilding-renovating of the church from 1903-1908 under the direction of the architect Temple Moore.

 

A few sections of the original medieval stained glass survive in St Nicholas Church, Guisborough.

The Premier Inn, Middlesbrough South, Middlesbrough Road, Upsall, Guisborough TS14 6RW and is set on the A171 road to Whitby. This Premier Inn is near the convenient, busy, friendly and historic market town of Guisborough with its ruined priory. It provides good quality budget accommodation and is next to a good old pub called the Cross Keys which dates back to the 1800's! so you have two choices of meals. In the distance is the iconic landmark of Roseberry Topping and the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors are great to walk on.
