ST CROSS PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

The small priory of the Holy Cross at the north end of the town Newport, was a cell of the Benedictine Abbey of Tiron. It was founded circa 1132. On 30th May, 1147, the Pope confirmed the church of the Holy Cross to the abbey of Tiron and this was again confirmed by Pope Alexander III. Along with other alien houses it was seized during the war with France and administered by The Crown. In May, 1369, the priory's income was sequestrated in consequence of the dilapidated state of the buildings. The site is apparently now occupied by a railway and viaduct.
