Merton Priory – A New Chapter

Talk by John Hawkes

Hurst Park School, Hurst Road, KT8 1QS

The Manor of Molesey Priory, ‘with all land in plain and wood, and waters and mills’ belonged to Merton Priory for 400 years, until seized by the crown in the 16th century.

The historic foundations of the 12th century Merton Priory Chapter House – bizarrely located under a main road in a supermarket car park – have recently been given an extensive facelift. John Hawkes of the Merton Priory Trust talks about this remarkable survival, and the plans for its future.
