KERSEY PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Augustinian Priory founded in 1218 as a hospital by Thomas de Burgh, but it soon became a priory. Dissolved in 1443-4. Excavations have recovered the plan of the conventual church, which had a 6-bay South aisle, but no North aisle. It was also discovered that the West range was originally the early 13th century wooden hospital converted in to the prior's house when the priory was founded. Further excavations revealed the east wall of the church, showing the building to have been 156 ft long, and the foundations of three of the pillars of the central tower.
