WITHAM PRIORY

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of the Carthusian monastery founded 1178-9 and Dissolved in 1539. Excavations have revealed the plan of the church, part of the cloister and some buttressed wall foundations. Three fishponds also survive. An earthwork survey carried out in 1993-94 and an aerial photograph transcription show that the major earthwork features were associated with two post Dissolution houses, their gardens and landscaping.
