BRIDGE END PRIORY OR HOLLAND BRIDGE PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

The Gilbertine Priory of St. Saviour, Bridgend, was founded in or before 1199, for probably never more than three or four canons and a few lay-brothers, part of whose duties was the repair of Holland Bridge, or Bridge End Causeway. The church and buildings were burnt in 1445, and some time after this the priory became a cell of Sempringham with which it was surrendered in 1538. The stones of the priory were used to build Priory Farm, 50 metres to the north, traces of decorated stone being visible in the fabric. Cropmarks are visible in the vicinity of the Priory site.
