Remains of Ankerwycke Nunnery
Remains of Ankerwycke Nunnery
All that remains of a convent founded in 1160. The whole of the site of the nunnery is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument. This particular structure is listed grade 2 (list entry number 1319364). When it was listed in 1955 it was described as consisting of "Two short lengths of two storey chalk rubble wall, one L-plan other partly of red brick". It looks to have deteriorated in the 60 years since then. View from the other side of the Thames.
