Medieval undercroft at Bradenstoke Priory, Lyneham and Bradenstoke - Wiltshire (UA)

C14 undercroft to priory. The building above was removed in the 1920s to America by Randolph Hearst. The undercroft was propped with grant aid from Historic England to prevent collapse. There was clearance of scrub and re-pointing in 2012. A Historic England project development grant was offered in November 2017 and completed in March 2019. A repair project to consolidate the vaults and provide a green roof commenced in Spring 2019 with further Historic England funding.
