ST BOTOLPHS MONASTERY

DESCRIPTION + /

A minster or monastery at Icanho or Ikanho, in East Anglia, (probably now Iken, Suffolk, although an alternative suggestion for the site is near Boston), was built by St Botolph in 653-4, destroyed circa 870. Messent states that the site is in a meadow to the north of Iken Church (St. Botolph's) where slight foundations may be traced, and quantities of reused material can be seen in farm premises and walls in the vicinity.
