A history of Sandleford Priory

Dr David Peacock

Monday, April 29, 2013 - 7:30pm

On Monday 29th April 2013, Dr David Peacock gave us a most interesting talk on’ A history of Sandleford Priory,’ which was founded about 12 hundred and was an Augustinian priory for around 150 years. The Augustinian order had a slightly more relaxed attitude to mixing with the larger community and had its share of scandal when one of the canons was sacked for not only living with a female but also pawning priory valuables.
