ST ANDREWS PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

A Cluniac Priory was founded at Northampton between 1093-1100 as a dependency of La Charite. In 1405 it became denizen, and was dissolved in 1538. Maps by Speed in 1610 and Pierce in 1632 suggest that the church lay to the North of Lower Priory Street and the gatehouse North of Grafton Street. The priory was entirely surrounded by a precinct wall. The area of the priory was built over in the 19th century. A watching brief in 1980 observed mutilated Mediaeval deposits, most notably part of the monk's cemetery. Dependencies: Kingsthorpe Hospital.
