NEWNHAM PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Augustinian priory, founded circa 1165 by Simon de Beauchamp to replace, and with the endowments of, St Paul's collegiate church in Bedford. It was located in the church of St Paul at first, but moved to Newnham circa 1180. It was dissolved in 1540. Excavations in the 1980s and 1990s recovered the plan of the church with the claustral buildings to the south, but the excavations are unpublished. Several outbuildings, at least 13 in number, were also discovered in a courtyard to the West of the priory, dating to the 12th-14th centuries.
