Mattersey Priory (2) by Ray Clarke

Currently unavailable for purchase

Mattersey Priory is an English Heritage property located near the village of Mattersey, Nottinghamshire, England. It was a Gilbertine monastery.

It was founded by Roger son of Ranulph de Mattersey, around 1185.

A severe fire wrought dire destruction at this priory in the year 1279.

The Valor Ecclesiasticus of 1534 shows that the priory had a total income up to £61 16s. 7d.

The priory was surrendered on 3 October 1538 by Robert Holgate, Bishop of Llandaff, commendatory general master of the Order of Sempringham, and by Thomas Norman, Prior of Mattersey, Thomas Bell, sub-prior, and John Garton, William Schylton, and Richard Watson, canons.
Taken with Canon 20D

I love to see the world through the lens of my camera and capture some of the great memories I see. Hopefully my profile will give you an insight into the things I like to photograph
