MONUMENT NO. 245999

DESCRIPTION + /

Monastery founded before 681 by Dicul an Irish monk. It was certainly a well-endowed minster in the later saxon period, and was a possession of Osbern, chaplain to Edward the Confessor. Refounded as a college for secular canons displaced from Plympton circa 1121. Dissolved 1553. To the west of Church Cottage is a wall of stone rubble and flints with the date 1743 inset in it. Inset in this (wall) is a medieval pointed stone doorway which was presumably originally part of the secular college.
