St Guthlac's Priory

  (Redirected from Priory of St. Guthlac)

Saint Guthlac's Priory (or the Benedictine Priory of Saints Peter, Paul and Guthlac[1]) was a Benedictine priory in Hereford, England. It was originally founded in the early 12th century near the Church of St. Guthlac in town. After the church was ruined circa 1143, during the Anarchy, it relocated to a site between the present day Bath Street and Commercial Road at grid reference SO51534019.[2][1]

It was disestablished in 1538 as part of the Dissolution of the Monasteries during the English Reformation, and purchased by John Prise.
