PETERSTONE PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

St Peter's Priory and Hospital, Augustinian, founded before 1200, it suffered from floods in 1378 and 1387, and being in a state of decay was annexed to Walsingham, after which it ceased to exist as a priory. Extant remains of the priory are visible in the north wall of Peterstone farmhouse, and the east and south wall of a barn. The construction is of flint, cob and stone, and of 14th century date. The remains are too fragmentary and disjointed to postulate their original purpose or plan. There are no visible associated earthworks.
