Stroll from Sand Cottage along the country road to Bridgetown Priory which was founded by Alexander Fitz Hugh Roche in the early 13th century. Its buildings are placed around the usual quadrangle. The church is on the north side, and is divided into two parts, with the eastern section having 13th century lancet windows and a good 15th century tomb niche. Considerable portions of the domestic buildings remain including a covered passage beside the cloister on the east side and a fine refectory with 13th century lancet with windows on the first floor of the southern range of buildings.
