WYMONDLEY PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Augustinian Priory founded originally as a hospital in 1218 by Richard de Argentein. It be came a priory shortly after. The hospital was extant until at least 1290. The priory was dissolved in 1537. The surviving upstanding fabric (principally a section of the nave) is now incorporated into a farmhouse. To the North of the former priory is a pasture field containing the earthwork remains of medieval cultivation, overlain by a small agricultural complex attached to the priory. The claustral complex probably lay to the North of the church.
