The priory of St Stephen originally founded as a hospital before 1135 became a priory with 3 or 4 canons sometime after 1200. It was dissolved in 1537. (2)

Remains comprise the foundations of a long building at TF91642890. The roadside fence from TF 91562884 - TF 91562889 has been raised on top of an old wall, possibly precinct. One hundred yards north are a few fragments of walling intermingled with debris from the now demolished Abbey Farm. An area of disturbance south of the long foundation appears to be drainage. See 25" survey. (3)
