Extremely significant historical building which is greatly underrated and overlooked. The Priory church was only spared demolition at the Dissolution because it was also used as the Parish Church. Despite that, the locals had so little respect for the building that they plundered its stone...More

Visited this because a friends husband did a sculpture for this place. People were helpful in finding the sculpture at the bottom of the graveyard. Grandson did the (Thompson) mouse quiz and managed to find them all

Although the front and towers are Victorian, the priory church is the remaining part of a very large Augustinian medieval priory, first built over 900 years ago. Go around the outside and see the remains of the cloister, good display boards.

We visited the priory during our holiday and received a warm welcome from some volunteers. One gave an interesting overview whilst another helped the kids complete an interesting mouse hunt. The choir were practicing which complemented the ambience of the priory. An hour well spent.
