Remains of Chantry at Kilve, Sea Lane, Kilve - Somerset West and Taunton

Early C14, with later medieval additions, formerly believed to be remains of collegiate dwelling of chantry priests. A Historic England survey has shown that the ruins are part of an important manorial complex. Historic England funded emergency repairs in 2010 and 2011, a conservation plan and further works in 2013 and 2014. Further jointly funded consolidation works were undertaken in 2015. Structural movement in one gable, which is propped, remains to be addressed and a major phase of work is underway and due to start on site later in 2019.
