Medieval gatehouse to the 13th-century College of Priests - where the 14th-century theological reformer, John Wyclif, lived.
The College consists of the gate tower, west wing and two turrets. These are all that remain of a medieval college of priests that was founded in 1194 by Bishop Celestine of Worcester and was later expanded, with the aim of converting the church into a cathedral.
The present buildings date from circa 1455 when Bishop Carpenter of Worcester rebuilt the college. This building was acquired by the National Trust in 1907 and was one of our first acqusitions.
The gatehouse has a strong community presence in Westbury on Trym acting as a meeting place for the local parish church and community groups.
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
