Grace Dieu Priory


The Grace Dieu Priory is situated on the A512 about 4 miles west of the M1 at Junction 23. Visitors should park at the Bull's Head and visit the site via the woods. 



The Priory dates back to around 1239 and was an independent Augustinian Priory. It was dissolved in 1538. A statue near the ruins depics one of the White Nuns of St Augustine. Although now just ruins the visitor can get an idea as to the scale of the establishment. 



The Priory is reputed to be haunted and frequent paranormal investigations have taken place with recordings of various sightings on a variety of websites.
