Listing Text

St Helen's Priory
SZ 6390 5/118A


The house is C20 but retains on the West front a restored portal deriving
from the original cluniac Priory of St Helen's, founded in l090. The
portal has clustered columns with stiff leaf capitals and pointed arch
with crockets and finial, saints heads in hollow chamfers (probably
the head at Oak Hill, Oakhill Road, Springvale derives from here).
Fruit and leaf decoration in outer chamfer. Pairs of angels each side
possibly added later.
