CHAPEL OF ST JOHN OF JERUSALEM

DESCRIPTION + /

A 14th century chapel incorporating 12th century features is all that remains of a Preceptory of Knights Hospitallers, founded before 1189 and dissolved before 1535. The chapel was restored in 1886. There was apparently a community of monks here before 1189, because a certain Brother Thomas granted lands to the Hospitallers in the reign of Henry II. After the preceptory of Garway was merged into Dinmore by 1489, this became one of the major Hospitallers Preceptories, with extensive holdings in Shropshire and Wales. The house was leased privately before 1535.
