BRIMPSFIELD GRANGE

DESCRIPTION + /

The alien grange of Brimpsfield was founded, probably before AD 1100 as a cell of the Benedictine Abbey of Fontenay. It was not a conventual establishment, but a grange sufficient to house two or three monks and to store crops and tithes. It may have contained a small chapel, or the monks may have worshipped at the adjacent church or at a chapel in the castle. The priory was seized in 1414 under the Act for the confiscation of alien priories, and nothing now remains, though some large worked stones may be seen in field walls and paving a gate way near the churchyard.
