St. Botolph's Priory.
Looking back towards the West Front.
The walls are built from flint and septarian nodules from the London Clay with other parts, such as archways, being built from Roman bricks.
The remains of one of the first Augustinian priories in England, founded c.1100. An impressive example of early Norman architecture, built in flint and reused Roman brick, the church displays massive circular pillars and round arches and an elaborate west front. Later badly damaged by cannon fire during the Civil War siege of 1648.
