The church/chapel next to the Priory.

According to the board on the other side of the wall I should be standing in the Priory Church now.

The gable end of the chapel.

A reconstructed section of the castle wall.

Clare Church from the path up to the Castle ruins.

Although mostly reconstructed, it gives you a great idea of what it looked like 700+ years ago!
