Ruins of Priory of Order of Grandmont founded 1220 - 5. Sandstone rubble
with a few visible dressed stones. Plan barely distinguishable but consisted
of small apsidal ended church with sacristry separated from chapter house by
a small passage. The RCHM plan also shows the position of the claustral
ranges. A few "water holding" bases are still visible at the entrance to the
chapter house. Many of the features noted by Pevsner are now indistinguishable.
