TYWARDREATH PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

A Benedictine priory founded circa 1088 as an alien priory dependent on the monastery of St Serge at Angers, it was for a time one of the most notable monastic foundations in the county. It became independent circa 1400, and was suppressed in 1536. Ruins were visible circa 1822, but according to Pevsner, nothing remained by 1951. The bulk of the remains are thought to be in the orchard here. It had a grange at St Anthony in Meneage.
