Wenlock Priory

Wenlock Priory is a fantastically atmospheric ruined Anglo Saxon monastery outside Much Wenlock. It was founded in 680 by King Merewalh of Mercia. It was a ‘dual house’ in that it was a community of both monks and nuns. The Priory’s second abbess was Miburga, daughter of Anglo Saxon royalty who was later made a saint and who features in Shropshire myth and legend. Wenlock Priory is now run by English Heritage.
