I

C12, C13. Founded by Henry de Port in the time of Henry I as a dependency of St Vigor Carasy, Normandy, and suppressed as an alien priory in 1446, eventually passing to Queens College, Oxford (the present patrons), which carried out restorations in 1843 and 1936. The surviving part of the priory church comprises the Early English choir and the Norman Tower, with fragments embodied in a wall on a line westwards from the south-west corner of the tower. The choir has 4 tall lancets on each side at the east end, a triple lancet east window, and at the western end 2 low pointed arches on rectangular piers (once opening onto side chapels) now walled on the outside to form recesses, 3 containing medieval slabs and one a fine C13 wooden effigy of a cross-legged knight. There are floor slabs, C15 pews; a small area of north wall with fragments of C13 wall painting, and a trefoil-headed piscina. The tower is supported on round arches with stages resting on plain caps, the upper level having on each face 3 arches, the outer containing windows, and a (restoration) open timber frame to support a ceiling and a pyramid roof. An C18 wooden screen separates the tower from the chancel; the other 3 sides to the former crossing are formed by later walls, the west containing a central entrance, the north having doorways in a modem vestry. Externally, the roofing is of tile, with a low-pitched slate roof above the vestry. The chair walls are of flint (partly plastered), with stone dressings, the tower of stone rubble with ashlar features. A stair turret projects from the north-west corner of the crossing, and buttresses occur on the lines of the walls of the former transepts and nave. A C15 font occupies the centre of the floor beneath the tower, and there are several medieval coffin slabs on the east side.
