CRASWALL PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of St Mary's Priory, founded circa 1225 by Walter de Lacy and granted to God's House College, Cambridge, in 1462. The priory belonged to the French Order of Grandmont and is unique in retaining its Grandmont ground plan in spite of centuries of natural decay. The priory was built of sandstone rubble and a few dressed stones are also visible today. The plan of the priory is barely distinguishable but consisted of a small apsidal ended church, the cloisters to the South, with sacristry separated from the chapter house by a small passage.
