Merton Priory

Welcome to Merton Priory.

Here you will find information on the project to found an education and information centre on the site of the Chapter House of Merton Priory. Merton was a major Augustinian priory, founded in 1117 and dissolved in 1538, whose foundations are preserved in a chamber under Merantun Way.

Since 1990 the Chapter House has staged many public open days, has hosted numerous visits by school and adult groups, and has been the atmospheric venue for many events including Shakespearean drama, art exhibitions, music, lectures, medieval banquets, religious services and social receptions.

From November 2017 until Summer 2018 it will be closed for a major renovation scheme, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund through the Living Wandle Partnership (see "Plans").

Dates for completion of Phase 1 of the project and re-opening to the public will be posted on the site in due course.
