restoration work at Pill Priory

Pill Priory is a Tironian House located near Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire, Wales.  It was founded by Adam de Roche in ~1200.  At a somewhat later date, the Roche family founded a further daughter house on their lands at Glascarreg, Co. Wexford, Ireland. Adam’s possessions were very extensive; his dominium included churches in Steynton, Saint Kewit (Cewydd), St Mary of Rupe (Roche), St David of Newcastle and St Nicholas of New Mote.

The current owners of Pill Priory are undertaking restoration work on the property;  some recent photos of the restoration can be viewed on their web-site:

It is great to see this historical property in such good hands.
