6/13 Flanesford Priory



Former refectory of Augustinian Priory, now barn, founded 1346. Squared sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings, C20 pantiled roof. Main range aligned east/west with lower south-east projecting wing, C19 addition to west gable end of main range. Refectory range: formerly of 2 storeys, floor removed and threshing floor with cambered stone lintels to doorways inserted during mid-C19, eastern end retains floor. South elevation: roof with 2 ridge levels; 3 pointed arched windows, originally of 2 cusped lights with quatre- foil, the central mullion to each now missing; all to east of inserted barn door, traces of fourth window above door, 2 square-headed windows to ground floor, one to east retains a stone mullion. Weathering and row of corbels to north wall (rear) imply position of former cloister. South-east wing: 2 storeys with shouldered arched doorway in west side leading to staircase lit by 2 small windows and a further quatrefoiled opening, south gable has 2 square-headed windows and further blocked opening on ground floor. Two-storey C19 addition to west included for group value. The arrangement of the cowshed and barn to the rear of the refectory probably indicates the position of the former cloister. The priory was dedicated to St John the Baptist and was a small house of canons-regular of St Augustine founded by Sir Richard Talbot.
