ST JAMES PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

The priory of St James was founded by Baldwin De Redverus or Rivers, Earl of Devon before the year 1143. The mother house was the abbey of St Martin-in-the-fields, Paris - a Cluniac House. The community was small and consisted of a prior and four monks. The last documented prior was in 1428. The site was subsequently occupied by a house called the old abbey. The cob wall surrounding the present building has been suggested as the precinct wall of the priory.
