ALNESBOURN PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

The priory was founded circa 1200, probably by Alberte de Neville, who granted endowments in the early 13th century. The house was appropriated to Woodbridge, probably circa 1466 although it remained a priory. In 1514 it was described as being ruinous. The only remains are the foundations and lower half of the walls of a barn, centred TM19174041, constructed of septaria, rubble and tile with freestone quoins. The buttresses and upper portions of the barn walls are built of modern brick. Human skeletons are said to have been uncovered in 1948 and/or 1949 up against the walls of the barn on the south side when a cow shed was being constructed.
