WALTON PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Benedictine priory cell of St Felix at Walton, founded circa 1105 and dissolved 1528. It is thought that it was moved to its present position from an original site near Walton Castle (TM 33 NW 2) probably in the early 14th century Excavations in 1968 by Ipswich Museum and the DOE in 1971 to the southeast of the site marked on the OS map, (TM 29713581), revealed a small but substantial house of stone and rubble walls. No sign of a church was found, the cell probably used the parish church of St Mary (TM23NE58). A quantity of stained glass was found as well as flint flakes and a few sherds of Roman/British pottery and roof tiles.
