2. During the reign of Henry II Sir William Dawtrey founded here a Priory of Black Canons of St Augustine which was at first called Heringham Priory. It was later increased in size by Sir William Pagnell during the reign of Edward III. Two substantial portions of the Priory survive, namely the Refectory with a small portion of the monk's Common Room at its east end and the Chapter House. Both date from the middle of C13. The Refectory has been made into the modern farmhouse. This has 2 s and a basement, 3 w facing north and 6 w facing south. It is built of stone rubble, partly plastered. Tiled Roof. Casement ws. Inside little is said to remain to show that the building was once the Refectory. But the basement, entered on the south side, which was the undercroft or cellars, is more or less intact. This has a groined vault of 6 bays in 2 avenues supported on round stone columns in the centre. The section of the Common Room to the east which remains consists only of ruins.
