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 (remains scaffolded) and various standing remains, most in need of major repairs. 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. Ongoing discussions with the owners and the St Osyth Priory and Parish Trust.
