St Augustine’s Priory at Bilsington, Kent was founded by John Mansel in June 1253 with the consent of Henry III and the Archbishop of Canterbury professing the rule of St Augustine.
The foundation charter was confirmed by a charter of Henry III, dated 12 June, 1253, which was confirmed afterwards by Henry VI in 1444 and Edward IV in 1466.
Bilsington Priory was surrendered to the crown in 1535 and it was abandoned at Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries in 1538.
During the 1820s it was a base for smuggling gangs namely the Ransley Gang and The Aldington Gang.
The Priory was restored 1906 by J.T. Micklethwaite, Architect
During the Second World War troops were billeted at Bilsington Priory and at some point it was also an infirmary.
Bilsington Priory has had a long and varied history and during our site visit we came across two Canadian Soldiers from the Second World War and a lady in Victorian dress lazing near to the pond.
During our last investigation our guests witnessed loud footsteps coming up and down the stairs, a loud groan and chairs rocking in one of the store rooms and even a shadow figure walk past the door!
