Description

Wareham Priory was a monastery in Dorset, England, possibly founded by the Saxons in 672 and dispersed during the Danish raids on Wareham in 876. It was refounded in 915 by Elfleda and probably dissolved in 998. A Benedictine priory, a dependency of Lyre Abbey in Normandy, was founded in the early 12th century on the same site. It was suppressed in 1414 as an alien priory, and granted to the Carthusians. This house was in turn seized by the Crown in 1539. The site is now occupied by The Priory hotel.
