Welcome to Priory Quay

  Moments from the busy Dorset town of Christchurch, nestled between the magnificent Priory church and waters of Christchurch Harbour lies the marina development of Priory Quay.

  Comprising 39 houses of contemporary design, all grouped around a central yacht basin, Priory Quay has a stunning location at the junction of the Rivers Avon and Stour. This, plus its proximity to Christchurch’s historic town centre and Priory make it one of the most prestigious housing developments in the area and properties are highly sought after.

  Due to its waterside position, the land was used for hundreds of years as an area of boat building and boat storage. In the late 1980’s construction of Priory Quay commenced. Designed by local architects Cheshire Robbins, the development has won 2 acclaimed architecture awards: the Civic Trust Award in 1990 and the Eric Lyons Trust Award in 1994. It is worth noting that building lines of the development, whilst appearing unusual and contemporary from the land – closely resemble yacht sails, when viewed from the water.

  Access to Priory Quay is via the Town Quay, following the cobbled road over the Norman Bridge at Place Mill. Although a private estate, there is a short circular walk for visitors around the development, with fine views across the harbour to Hengistbury Head.
We hope that this information is both interesting and useful to you.

Thank you for visiting!
