Finding Us

Use the address or the map below.  The main entrance (primarily for pedestrians) is on Castle Hill, off Castle Street, Tutbury, Staffordshire, DE13 9JF or follow the Tutbury Castle brown tourist signs.

Parking – New for August-October 2018

From 14:00 on Saturday August 11th 2018 until mid-to-late-October there will be NO PARKING at St. Mary’s Priory Church Tutbury due to conservation work on the Alabaster arch on the West Door.

For drivers with walking difficulties, there is parking for one car near the South Door – please contact the Verger (or whoever is organising your visit) if this facility will be needed. 

From early August until October, there will be scaffolding at the West end of the Church and probably only room for one parking spot for drivers with walking difficulties.  Please contact the Verger if this will cause a problem.

Cars may drive down to the Church from the Castle Hill entrance for loading and unloading equipment or people with walking difficulties but then must immediately find a parking space outside of the Church grounds. 

Please do not park next to the scaffolding otherwise no one will be able to turn round.

Free parking is available in Duke Street car park (nearest post code DE13 9NE) and some on-street parking on Castle Street and Monk Street, but Church Street is too narrow for parking. 

Wheelchair users are most welcome but there is one step up and two down at the entrance to the Church.  If possible please contact the Verger (or whoever is organising your visit) so that the double doors can be opened in advance and the temporary ramps made ready (a project is in progress to provide direct wheelchair access).

For people coming to the Service on Sunday mornings, the Medical Centre staff car park in Church Street may be used for parking, but not on any other day of the week.  Please do not use the parking slots on the side next to the Medical Centre as these are still required for staff.
