About

Llanthony Secunda Priory is a ruined former Augustinian priory in Gloucester, England. It was founded in 1136 by Miles de Gloucester, 1st Earl of Hereford, as a retreat for the monks of Llanthony Priory, Vale of Ewyas, in what is now Monmouthshire, Wales, from persistent attacks by the local population.

 

By the 16th Century it had become an independent priory in its own right and had become one of the largest Augustian houses in England, owning 97 churches and 51 well appointed manors. 

 

After the Dissolution of the Monasteries the priory with its lands near Gloucester was granted by the Crown to Arthur Porter, MP for Gloucester. The Porters, and their descendants the Scudamores, used it as a mansion house until the Siege of Gloucester in 1643, when it became part of the Royalist camp. After the siege only outbuildings remained standing, used as a farmstead and stables

 

Today the remains are a grade 1 listed structure and are occasionally open to the public during Gloucesters Heritage Open Days which usually fall in September.
