Colchester Borough Council is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to take action to minimise disruption and keep residents and visitors safe.
Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance
St Botolph’s Priory is the first English Augustinian priory church, founded at the end of the eleventh century from the Anglo-Saxon minster community of Colchester. Only the ruined remains of the nave survive today, under the care of English Heritage and Colchester Borough Council. As well as priory ruins there is a large open space available for residents to enjoy. The site can be accessed from Priory Street, St Botolph's Church Walk or Britannia Car Park.
We are looking at ways in which we can encourage residents to use the site more, including events and lighting the priory itself and would like your view on how we can go about this. The consultation should take no more than 5 minutes to complete and can be found here:
