GREAT MASSINGHAM PRIORY

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  ABBEY FARMHOUSE, PRIORY OF ST MARY AND ST NICHOLAS
DESCRIPTION + /

Augustinian priory dedicated to St Mary and St Nicholas founded before 1260, originally termed a hospital but the master being a prior under Austin rule it was designated a priory. It was in decay in 1475-6 and was re-established as a cell of the priory of West Acre and dissolved in 1538. There is evidence that Abbey Farm contains monastic walling, which suggests that it was built on the South gable of the domestic range of the priory.
