History and Heritage 
Abbey House is on the site of an Augustinian priory founded in 1254 by Peter Chaceporc, keeper of the royal wardrobe, on land which formed part of the barony of Wahull. On Peter’s death the patronage of the house reverted to the Crown, and the canons had to sing a certain number of masses for the soul of the king as founder. By 1524 only two canons remained and probably on account of this diminished number the priory was granted to Cardinal Wolsey for his college at Oxford, and dissolved on 17 February1524. The buildings were demolished, but traces of the fabric were discovered during the conversion of a barn in 1984 including the footings of a column from the aisle of the priory church proving the priory church and parish church were on separate sites. The earthwork remains of the abbey site surrounded by fields are visible on aerial photographs and the fishpond and moat can still be seen.
