MONUMENT NO. 404445

DESCRIPTION + /

Bermondsey: Early monastic establishment. The founding of this house cannot be placed earlier than the pontificate of Pope Constantine I (708-715). There is however a late 12th century source which states that `Vermundesei' was a dependency of Medeshamstede (Peterborough) in 690. Nothing is known of its later history, and it may be one genuine case of a minster totally destroyed by the Danes.
Since both Bermondsey and Southwark minsters were in the same hundred of Brixton, it is unlikely that both served as minsters at the same time. Southwark minster probably succeeded Bermonsey as minster for the hundred.
