ST IVES PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of a Benedictine priory cell, established by 1017 AD and dissolved in 1539. The only existing remains are the South and West walls of a probable 14th century barn. Excavation in 1948-49 suggested that the barn walls were built on earlier foundations and that most of the Priory buildings probably lay under the present house (`The Priory'). Much 1st - 4th century pottery was found, together with a sherd of St Neots ware commencing a Mediaeval series running through to the present day.
