Thetford Priory
The Cluniac Priory of Our Lady of Thetford was founded in 1103 by Roger Bigod, 1st Earl of Norfolk and became one of the most important East Anglian religious houses.
In the 13th century, the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared in a vision, prompting the addition of a Lady Chapel containing an old hollow statue of her containing relics of saints, and the Priory became a magnet for pilgrims. It was the burial place for the Howard Earls and Dukes of Norfolk for over 400 years and was one of the last religious houses to be dissolved in 1540. It is now in the care of English Heritage
