Haverholme Priory ruins
Haverholme Priory ruins
A Gilbertine house was founded here in 1139 and the monastic buildings used from the Dissolution until the 1780s when a Gothic house was built. In 1835, architect H.E.Kendall built a Tudor style house for the eccentric 10th Earl of Winchelsea and Nottingham. The Earl once fought a duel with the Duke of Wellington and kept a pet lion in the house at one time ! It was put up for sale in 1921 and was still empty in 1927 when most of it was demolished. The remaining portion is the tower and part of the entrance front.
