Llanthony Secunda Priory, Llanthony Road, Gloucestershire GL2 5JH View on map

Established in 1136 by Augustinian Priors, it prospered and grew and, by 1205, had become independent of its mother church in Wales. By 1500, this Priory was one of the most prosperous and influential in England. At the Dissolution the nave became a parish church, the rest a dwelling. Most buildings were demolished following the Siege of Gloucester in 1643, and the site had various uses until acquired by Gloucester City Council in 1974 and by LSPT in 2007. They stand within an open 'parkland' setting alongside the Gloucester Ship Canal. Public access around the site is available each day, and to the Information Room during the working week. During term time, both the Brick Range and Medieval Range are used as educational spaced. On special open days visitors can step inside the buildings or join volunteers on a guided tour.
