Broadholme, Manor Farm, Site of Broadholme Priory
Manor Farm which was the site of Broadholme Priory.
"The Premonstratensian Broadholme Priory was founded adjacent to the village at sometime after 1154.
The priory was one of only two female priories of that order in England (the other being Orford Priory).
The priory was dissolved in 1536 as part of King Henry VIII's Dissolution of the Monasteries.
The site is currently occupied by Manor Farm, which may incorporate part of the former monastic buildings, although none are visible"
