WOOTTON WAWEN PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Benedictine alien priory founded after 1086 by the Abbey of Conches. It was dissolved in 1447. Excavations have revealed pre-11th century post-hole buildings and a secular cemetery dated to the period 1050-1160 from C-14 dating. This cemetery is attested to in documentary evidence. Several cess pits, drainage pits and post-holes representing both timber and stone buildings represented the priory of the 13th-16th centuries.
