Beeston Regis Priory

The ruins of the Augustinian St Mary's Priory, Beeston Regis. Founded in 1216 and in use until 1538, when it fell victim to Henry VIII's Dissolution of the Monastries process.

At least two local legends are connected to the site: the first claims there exists a lost tunnel connecting the priory to a local inn, the second involving a farmer's experiences with a ghost haunting the grounds. Both are mentioned on Beeston Regis' Wiki entry.

These pictures were taken around a year ago, on my older camera.
