Part of the ruins of Llanthony Priory
The Priory was established around 1100 by Norman Baron William de Lacy and by 1118 housed 40 monks of the Augustinian order, or Black Canons as they were known. But by 1135 their presence had offended the local Welsh populace who forced them out, against a background of widespread revolt against Norman rule in much of Wales. The monks had to retreat as far as Gloucester. In the 1180s until 1217 the Priory was rebuilt and redeveloped, and once more expanded in 1325. It was attacked by the Welsh again in Owain Glyndwr's rebellion between 1400 and 1405 and was partly ruinous from then. The Dissolution of the 1530's saw it become a proper ruin, which it remained until the 18th century when it was a hunting lodge or shooting box for landed gentry. Now it is in the hands of Cadw.
