From the shop (facing the door) turn left and proceed under the Gatehouse Arch and continue along Cavendish Street passing the Cavendish Arms and L'Enclume on the right hand side. Bear right and follow the road over the Wheelhouse Bridge keeping the high wall on the right for approx 100 metres. Priory Barn is the building on your right opposite the entrance to the Vicarge.
