Three Nuns 2
Mirfield Kirklees Priory

The Three Nuns around 1904.

Cecilia Topcliffe, Joan Leventhorpe and Katherine Grice
The original proprietors carved in stone over the entrance.

The present day Three Nuns is still an impressive building in its own right, the exterior remaining largely unchanged since its construction. Sadly the interior has suffered somewhat over the last two refits the pub has undergone. Originally the interior was split into a number of oak panelled rooms in character with the mock Tudor theme. The layout was changed to a more open plan form during the late 80's but sections of the oak paneling still remain. The windows contain small stained glass panes which are well worth taking time to look at if you visit. If you look carefully you will find clues to the date of the building. Above the fire place in the snug is a large painted panel featuring a picture of three nuns; this picture is a copy of the original pub sign on the old building and can also be seen carved in stone above the entrance.  

An artists impression of how the priory may have looked.
