  The Priory Church of St Nicholas and St John
by Balam
 
 

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.
