Wareham Priory

Wareham Priory was a priory 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 founded in the early 12th century on the same site was suppressed in 1414 and granted to the Carthusians, and in turn dissolved in 1539. The site is now occupied by The Priory hotel.[1]
