St. Nicholas Priory
Exeter
City of Exeter
Devon  England

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Nothing remains of the Priory's church or it's burials. During the dissolution of the monasteries by King Henry VIII in 1536, the monks were pensioned off and their church and its cloisters were destroyed. The remaining buildings and precinct were then sold by the Crown.
A building which had been the Priory's guest quarters, which the monks had used to provide hospitality for pilgrims, travellers and important guests, were then used as an Elizabethan town house, c.1575 and 1602. Later, the building was subdivided into houses and businesses.
In 1913 Exeter Corporation bought the Priory in order to restore it, to show its original monastic architecture. It has now been restored as an Elizabethan town house, and is open to the public as a small museum.
