LONG BENNINGTON GRANGE

DESCRIPTION + /

Long Bennington, dependent on the Cistercian abbey of Savigny, was founded probably about the end of the 12th century. It was the wealthiest alien cell in the County. The cell was granted, in 1421, and confirmed, in 1462, to the Carthusian priory of Mount Grace in Yorkshire. Although called an alien priory it appears to have been no more than a grange with a monk-warden in charge.
