Boxgrove
Boxgrove Priory, The Guesthouse

Boxgrove Priory is a lovely old church dedicated to St Mary and to St Blaise, It dates from the early twelfth century.

The Priory Church sits in a delightful village in West Sussex, some 3 miles from the Cathedral City of Chichester and for over nearly 900 years the villagers of Boxgrove have worshipped in this magnificent building. Its glory is still much in evidence in spite of losing the west end of the Priory during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the reign of Henry VIII.

This atmospheric photo depicts the ruins of what was once the guesthouse: it was where the Prior entertained his guests and where travellers could find lodgings. If you do get the chance to visit the area this is certainly a place to visit. You can take some great snaps of it on one of the latest Mobile Phones that has a good camera. It's a great day out if you are staying or living in Chichester. It is a chance to really connect with nature and also history.
