SINNINGTHWAITE PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Cistercian nunnery founded 1160 dissolved in 1536. Earthworks including a moat are visible on air photographs. Sinningthwaite Priory Farmhouse was erected on the site of the priory and incorporates a Late Norman arch and another with zigzags intersecting across a roll-moulding. To the right of the latter arch there are two smaller blank arches, the beginning probably of some arcading in the cloister. The main gateway could have led to the refectory. Opposite the gateway some fragments of Norman to 14th century date have been built into a wall.
