Notes about this historic site

1 The parish church of St Leonard was originally part of the Priory (PRN 2609), but it is probable that this part was always assigned to the parishioners and that the destroyed portion of it constituted the church of the Nuns. It is a rectangular structure 28.6m long by 6.7m wide, dating from about 1315, and having the W tower of 1663-4 built within the W end. At the E end of the S side is a modern organ-chamber.
