Chicksands Priory

Chicksands Priory dates from 1150 but was dissolved in 1538. Very little is now visible, but the site has a rich history and is the only surviving example of a Gilbertine cloister (now the Officer’s Mess and not at all monastic). Some buried remains were found by TV’s Time Team dig in 2001.

We will have a tour of the building and learn about the Gilbertines, the Osborn family (who have been associated with Chicksands since 1576), and the military. Weather and time permitting, we will also see the Walled Garden.
