Ruins of West Ravendale Priory approximately 160 metres south-west of Priory Farmhouse



Ruin, reputed to be remains of former Priory Chapel. Medieval. Chalk, flint and ironstone rubble and squared blocks. Rectangular on plan, approximately 14 metres by 5 metres internally. Parts of two adjoining ivy-covered walls standing up to approximately 4 metres high at north-east angle; no visible indications of openings. Other walls survive as low overgrown banks of rubble. West Ravendale Priory, a Premonstratensian cell dependant on Beauport Abbey, Brittany, was founded c1202. The buildings were described as ruinous and in disrepair in the early C14. The priory was dissolved and its possessions vested in the crown in 1389, and in 1439 estate was granted to Southwell College. Remains of north and south doors, an east window and tiled floor were visible in 1878.
