In the reign of Henry 1 (1100-1135) or Stephen (1135-1154) William de Gresley founded a Priory of Canons Regular of St Augustine and the Church formed part of the monastic buildings.

This is a beautiful picture of a beautiful church, Peter! I like English churches, they are quite different from ours. Greetings, Anne

Thank you Ann

One thing I do have is a great number of pictures of English Churches!

Most of the Churches still have Norman, and even Saxon, influences. It is a pity that more of the Monasteries did not survive the Reformation.

Best wishes, Peter
