OXNEY PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Oxney House on site of Benedictine cell, moated monastic grange, and chapel. The Priory was extant in the reign of Edward I and there were several monks there in 1307. Although the Victoria County History dimisses its use as a cell, preferring to call it a grange, Knowles and Hadcock believe it to have primarily being a cell until dissolved in 1538. The fact that there is a moat appears to indicate that the cell may have ceased to exist before 1538 and that it had been converted to a grange afterwards.
