Clare Priory was dissolved at the time of the reformation. The medieval bit in use now was the Friars infirmary and was used as a barn at one time. When the priory was reestablished it became a parish church. Some time in the past 10 years a big extension has taken place and somehow it has lost a bit of ambience.
This was once the church..... now just an approach :(
Which do you prefer? Yes I know I know it may be needed but it lacks character.... call me old fashioned.
I would love to see the priory in its prime but it is interesting to see the ruins with the leaves etc.
All that's left of the old castle.
