Where

Ewenny Priory, in Ewenny in the Vale of Glamorgan, was a monastery of the Benedictine order, founded in the 12th century. The building was unusual in having military-style defences. Following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, the priory, like many of its kind, was converted into a private house. However, the priory church is still in use, and restoration work has recently been carried out by Cadw.
