The Priory was built in 1188 by the Augustinians and was demolished centuries ago. All that remains is a lump of masonry in one of the fields. A series of hot summers culminating in 1999 revealed the outline of the foundations in the grass. A footpath runs through the middle.
Transcribed from my notebook:
The past revealed as shadows on the grass
A stain in the earth
A footpath runs through the middle
A completely masculine life? Or maybe it was a nunnery? I think a priory can be either and have a prior or a prioress. Will investigate.
