Pembroke Things to Do: 12 reviews and 51 photos
The church on the hill opposite the castle was once part of Monkton Priory which was a Benedictine Priory granted to The Abbey of Seez in Normandy in 1098 although the site was already in use before the Normans arrived with a Celtic Christian community having existed here for many years.
Although the Priory fell into disuse the disolution of the monasteries in the 1530s some arches and the Priory Farmhouse which might have been the Prior's dwelling can still be seen.
