SPORLE PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

The church of St Mary and other endowments were granted papal confirmation in 1123 as a Benedictine alien cell of St Florent-de Saumur. The house seems to have had only a Prior in the 14th century and it was vacant for a time after the Black Death. Dissolved circa 1414; granted to Eton College in 1440. Trial trenching on the site in 1996 found two Mediaeval ditches.
