MAIDEN BRADLEY PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Originally founded as a leper hospital in 1164. It appears to have been placed under Augustinian canons between 1189-120, and although it cared for lepers after 1325, it had the status of a priory. It was dissolved in 1536. There are extensive earthworks, surveyed by the RCHME, which appear to show that the priory had a claustral layout. There is also a triangular enclosure with possible cells suggestive of the area for lepers. The 14th century gatehouse and other parts of the priory remain in the buildings of Priory Farm.
