LLANTHONY PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

The Augustinian priory of Llanthony by Gloucester was built in 1136 by the prior and canons of Llanthony in the Black Mountains (SO 22 NE 1), who had been driven from there by the Welsh, and was given the name of Llanthony Secunda to distinguish it from its parent house. It was dissolved in 1538. Part of the gatehouse and precinct wall survive, and it is thought that part of the church was encountered during excavations of the nearby canal in the 19th century. Dependencies: St Mary's Hospital, Gloucester, Duleek Priory, (Ireland), and Llanthony Prima, (Wales).
