St Mary and St Patrick's Priory and Lambley Bastle (Coanwood)
A priory for Benedictine nuns once stood on this site between 1190 when it was founded and 1537 when it was dissolved. There are no visible remains of this priory, also known as Lambley Priory, but hummocky ground near the farmhouse and fragments of medieval stonework in the garden of Lambley Farm suggests that foundations may still lie buried nearby.
