History Of Norton Priory
Founded in 1134, the Priory remained active until its dissolution in April 1536. It was sold to the Brooke family within eight years of the dissolution, who owned it for over 400 years. In 1966, the site of the Priory, by then in a state of considerable decay, was given to the Runcorn Development Corporation by Sir Richard Brooke. Very little of the medieval monastery remained visible, and it was decided to excavate and display the ruins as a public amenity. The excavations revealed the foundations and lower parts of the walls of the monastery buildings and the abbey church. A viewing platform (with audio commentary) now enables visitors to gain a clear impression of the scale of the site. During the dig, there were other vital finds, including a Norman Romanesque archway, now placed at the entrance to the Undercroft – a finely carved arcade with a floor of medieval mosaic tiles, the largest floor area of this type to be found in any modern excavation.
The Undercroft was built in the late 12th century as a storage area for the Priory and store food, drink, cloth and plate. In 1868 Sir Richard Brooke turned part of the Undercroft into an impressive entrance hall to the family home.
