WILLOUGHTON TEMPLARS PRECEPTORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Willoughton, founded during the reign of Stephen, was the richest of the English houses of the Templars. After the suppression of the order in 1312 the house passed to the Hospitallers. It was dissolved in 1540. The preceptory stood on Temple Garth. In the fields adjoining are remains of moats, perhaps of the preceptory. A large proportion of the perimeter moat and extensive internal earthworks remain of this site. The farmhouse and outbuildings on Temple Garth display no evidence of antiquity.
