Priory of St Milburga
SJ 60 SW (SJ 6200) 6/1 24.10.50.


Finally refounded circa 1080. Cluniac. Exposed foundations indicate
much of the original ground plan. Of the C13 Church there remain fragments
of the west front, three west bays of the south nave aisle with intact
chamber above, three bays of north transept and a substantial piece of
the south transept and an important work. The east claustral range retains
a vaulted chamber, the three-arched entrance to the chapter house, roofless,
with excellent late C12 arcading, and building to south-east forming part
of Priory House. The south range has fragments of the frater and a fine
doorway. The cloister garth contains remains of an octagonal lavatorium,
late C12, similar to that at Mellifont. A.M.
