Stoke sub Hamdon Priory

Stoke sub Hamdon Priory is a 14th century former priests house of the chantry chapel of St Nicholas, in Stoke-sub-Hamdon, Somerset. 

The Ham stone building was originally the Provost's Lodging, part of the College Buildings of the Beauchamp Chantry. Before 1304 it may have been the rector's house.

After 1518 it became a farm, known as Parsonage Farmhouse, which it remained until around 1960.  The priory has been owned by the National Trust since 1946 with major restoration being carried out in 1967.
