St Osyth's Priory, St. Osyth - Tendring

Remains of an Augustinian priory founded before 1127 and post-Dissolution mansion incorporating monastic remains. The site comprises a number of buildings including the main house, a gatehouse, Darcy Tower and various standing remains, most in need of major repairs. The Darcy Tower (pictured) remains scaffolded. The 'ruined range' was repaired by Historic England in 2013-15. In 2016 planning permission for conversion and enabling development was agreed. Repairs to the Baliff's Cottage and adjoining range were completed summer 2017. On-going discussions relate to a business plan, not yet agreed
