New Contract - Llanthony Secunda Priory
16th Dec 2016New Contracts
Summit Electrical have been awarded the electrical contract for the refurbishment of the Grade 1 listed Llanthony Secunda Priory in Gloucester.
Llanthony Secunda Priory is a ruined former Augustinian priory in Gloucester, England. It was founded in 1136 by Miles de Gloucester, 1st Earl of Hereford, as a retreat for the monks of Llanthony Priory, Vale of Ewyas, in what is now Monmouthshire, Wales, from persistent attacks by the local population.
Llanthony Secunda Priory, also known as Llanthony by Gloucester, was a priory of the Augustinian Order, which was an order of canons set up in the middle of the 11th century and adhering the Rule of St. Augustine of Hippo.
Work to refurbish the ruined former Augustinian priory in Gloucester has started in the wake of a successful Heritage Lottery Fund bid of £3.19 million.
Llanthony's Reformation Project will see the major buildings of Llanthony Secunda Priory, in Llanthony Road – the medieval range, Victorian farmhouse and brick range – all restored and brought back into use for both the trust and for Gloucestershire College.
