Higham Priory

The Abbey at Saint-Sulpice-la-Forêt in Brittany was the mother church of the priory at Higham which stood opposite St Mary’s. The daughter of King Stephen, Mary of Blois, was given the Manor of Lillechurch and so left Saint-Sulpice-la-Forêt to come to England to Lillechurch and so the story of Higham Priory began, which of course includes St Mary’s.

These photos were taken on a trip to St-Sulpice-la-Forêt.
