CASTLE ACRE PRIORY
GREAT MALVERN PRIORY
The Prior was responsible for the community of canons, friars or monks in his house, but he reported directly to the abbey. Not unlike some of the old abbey churches, a few of the priory churches have survived as parish churches. In other instances, only fragments remain, standing in isolation or as a 'romantic' feature of a former country mansion. At Llantony the ruins provide an evocative backdrop to a small hotel.
