POULTON PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

A small priory of probably not more than 4 or 5 Gilbertine canons founded originally as a chantry chapel in 1348 by Sir Thomas Seymour, but changed to a house of Gilbertine canons from 1350. It was dissolved in 1539. The former conventual church became the parish church, but this was demolished and replaced by Butterfield's church, built in 1873. The only extant remains are a 14th century arch incorporated in a wall at Priory Farm. The site was assessed for Scheduling in 2011 but failed to meet the required criteria.
