Full description

A Benedictine priory, a cell of St Benoit-sur-Loire, founded before 1129 and granted by Ralph Earl of Chester. The earliest mention of a Prior is in 1213. The priory was dissolved in 1414. {1}{2}

The site of the alien priory of Minting, suppressed by 1403. The site was granted in 1421 to Mount Grace Priory, North Yorkshire, as a grange. The earthworks visible represent stock compounds, yards, ponds and the grange buildings within a small moat. A broad hollow way connects the moat to the village. The ponds have been cleaned out and enlarged, but the earthworks represent a well-preserved grange of late medieval type. {3}{4}
