THE NUNNERY dated 1660 is thought to stand near the site of a Mediaeval Priory founded in 1247 by Richard Clare, Earl of Gloucester. Little is known about the priory’s history except that it was a very poor Order. The last recorded Prioress before its dissolution was Margaret Loftus in 1543. “The Nunnery” is thought to incorporate sections of the old priory buildings.
