ST AIDANS CHURCH

DESCRIPTION + /

Augustinian priory church on the site of an Early Medieval church and cell of St Aidan. An Augustinian priory was founded in 1121as a cell of Nostell Abbey, and remained a possession of Nostell, gaining priory status in 1228. It was dissolved in 1537. Only the church survives of the priory buildings, and it probably stands on the site of a wooden one in existence at the time of St Aidan, and probably destroyed in circa 875 by the Danes. A conventual choir with crypt was built for the use of the monks, but the rest of the church remained parochial. The church was rebuilt in the 12th century, altered in the 13th and 14th centuries, and restored in the 19th centuries. West tower, nave, aisles, transepts and chancel.
