Nestling in the opposite corner of the Roman Fort of Portus Adurni to Portchester Castle, St. Mary’s Church is all that remains of an Augustinian Priory founded in the 1120s.
Although the church is largely as it was by the time it was dissolved it has had various tweaks and changes in the years such as Elizabethan additions inside, a Victorian pulpit and a 20th Century altar rail.
The church is, perhaps, best admired from the roof of the Castle and is worth a quick look if you are visiting to get a real feel for the range of the history at this site.
