DETAILS A late perpendicular two storied building of domestic character, probably situated to the NW of the now obliterated cloistral buildings. Part of the Abbot's House or Guest House(?). Two light square headed windows in E face and 4 centred arched window in SW face. Restored in 1979/80 by the Wood Newton Partnership and converted into a public house. Augustinian priory founded by Robert Ferrers c. 1146. Some of the masonry exhibits late 12th century fragments. This record has been generated from an "old county number" (OCN) scheduling record. These are monuments that were not reviewed under the Monuments Protection Programme and are some of our oldest designation records. As such they do not yet have the full descriptions of their modernised counterparts available.
