Ulverscroft Priory
Ulverscroft Priory
Described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as the most conspicuous monastic ruin in Leicestershire, the Priory was dissolved in 1539. The tower dates from the 14th century, although other parts date from the 13th century. Farm buildings were later added, butting onto the Priory. It is a Grade I listed Scheduled Ancient Monument but privately owned.
