What we offer on a school trip
The original buildings on the site were built in 1258 as an infirmary (hospital) for the Benedictine monks of Walden Abbey. After the monastery was dissolved during the Reformation the property was rebuilt and completed by around 1600 as almshouses by the Earl of Suffolk who built Audley End House. It is these Grade 1 listed buildings where serve as our residential youth and conference centre today.
Today St Mark’s is used by youth groups, schools, adult groups, voluntary and commercial organisations as well as families holding a celebration or event. The site is suitable for parties, retreats, educational visits and indoor or outdoor activities.
