Sempringham Priory
Sempringham
Sempringham
Priory
Priory
was a priory in Lincolnshire, England, located in the medieval hamlet of Sempringham, to the northwest of Pointon. Today, all that remains of the priory is a marking on the ground where the walls stood and a square, which are identifiable only in aerial photos of the vicinity. However, the parish church of St Andrew's, built around 1100 AD, is witness to the priory standing alone in a field away from the main road.[1] The priory was built by Gilbert of Sempringham, the only English saint to have founded a monastic order.[2][3][4] The priory's religious accentuation as an important religious pilgrimage site began when St Gilbert established the Gilbertine Order
