History

St Nicholas Priory boasts a richly unique history. The building was originally used as a monastery by monks of the Benedictine order, who stayed here for over five centuries. Sold by The Crown following the dissolution of the order by King Henry VIII, the property was then purchased by Robert Mallet who leased it out as a prestigious townhouse. The estate passed into the ownership of a religious institution again in 1775, which it was taken over by the Roman Catholic Mission. Restored to reflect much of its original splendour, the priory is now a Grade 1 listed building and recognised heritage site.
