CAWSTON GRANGE

DESCRIPTION + /

Cawston was built by Edwin in the Confessor's time and in 1086 it was in the possession of Turchis of Warwick. In 1235 the gift of Cawston to Pipewell Abbey by Ingleram Clement and William his son was confirmed. Monastic ownership continued until the Reformation and in 1546 the manor was granted to Thomas Boughton. This was a very important grange, built like a monastery, with cloister dormitories for monks and lay-brethren, reredorter, frater, and chapel. It was burnt in 1307 but was rebuilt. It was dependent on the Cistercian Abbey of Pipewell, Northants. The site was developed in the later 16th century as a mansion, but this was pulled down in 1829. This was replaced by the 19th century farmhouse.
