Clare Priory was the first house of the Austin (Augustinian) Friars in England having been established in 1248 at the invitation of Richard de Clare. It is one of the oldest religious houses in England  and is situated in the shadows of Clare Castle on the banks of the River Stour in Suffolk.
Following its suppression in 1538 the house passed through many hands and uses until the Augustinian Friars purchased the house in 1953 and so they returned to their origins in England.
It is now a Parish and Retreat Centre and welcomes all visitors to its picturesque grounds, Priory Ruins, and Shrine, either for long stays or group Retreats. Click here for more information about Clare Priory today and its history.http://www.saintmarysharborne.org.uk/history2.html
