EDINGTON PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Founded in 1351 by William of Edington, Bishop of Winchester, as a collegiate chantry. It was converted into a Bonhommes monastery in 1358 by the founder. It was badly damaged in Jack Cade's rebellion of 1450, when the Bishop of Winchester was dragged from the church and murdered. It surrendered in 1539, and most of the buildings were destroyed by 1579. Several features are still visible, these including fishponds, fragments surviving in the Priory, monastic gardens, the Conduit House, and the church (see ST95SW93 for the latter).
