WHITE LADIES PRIORY

WHITE LADIES PRIORY
WHITE LADIES PRIORY

The ruins of the Augustinian Priory of St Leonard, founded in 12th century and suppressed in 1535. A timber-framed house was built on the site - no trace of this remains. The future King Charles II hid briefly at White Ladies Priory whilst trying to evade Parliamentary forces following his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651.

The easiest way to find this property is to follow the path from Boscobel House.
