21 The Mint

About

Rescued and restored refectory wing of 11th century St Nicholas Priory. Whole House and Courtyard Garden open 11am to 4pm. Entrance free.

No 21 The Mint represents the former Refectory wing of the llth Century Benedictine Priory of St Nicholas founded on the authority of William the Conqueror. It was a high single storey dining hall open to the roof, but with the Eastern end, on the other side of a timber and plaster partition, arranged in two or three storeyed chambers.

The Priory consisted of four ranges around a square, roofed cloister walkway, with a central garth (garden) The great Priory church occupied the South side and the West range comprised the Prior's chamber, splendid Guest hall etc and a large kitchen, which also served the adjoining Refectory in the North range. The monks lived, worked and prayed here for 450 years, with building and re-building continuing throughout, as funds permitted. Much of what we see today dates from their major re-building of the 15th century.
