Notes about this historic site

2 Scheduled as Warwickshire Monument No 8.
4 The priory is, with the exception of minor intrusions by farm buildings, wholly enclosed. The precinct wall, standing to 2.5m high, is largely contemporary with the priory and built of the same large squared blocks of mortared light red sandstone. In places it has been reduced by collapse, and some parts have been rebuilt with the same material. The area so enclosed measures 250m N-S by 240m E-W and is subdivided by similar walling.
5 The priory precincts are enclosed on all sides by a wall of which the great part remains in good condition.
