"The Deanery was anciently the residence fo the Prior of the Monastery. Its most important feature is the west end of the Prior's Chapel and the adjoining building, where, in one case, is the two-centre arch with zig-zag mouldings - early English routine, with Norman details; in the other, the round arch and columns, with early English details. The interior of the Chapel is very interesting, as, though denuded of its furniture, the decorative tiles remain in their original position."

Descriptive Letterpress from the book 'Photographs of English and Scottish Scenery'
