The market square by mave

The market square

Today I walked to the Library in St Neots. Afterwards I took a few pictures on my phone of the lights in the middle of the Market Square. The figures bottom right represent monks who attended the Benedictine Priory in St Neots. So I made a collage and added a few notes.

St Neots Priory
A monastery was first founded here in about 974 by Earl Aelric (or Leofric) and his wife Aelfleda (or Ethelfleda), who granted it two hides of land, part of the manor of Eynesbury, later called the manor of St Neots. Its site is uncertain, though it may have been where the present parish church stands. It is said that the relics of the Cornish Saint Neot were obtained from Neotstoke (now St Neot) in Cornwall and brought to the priory in order that it might have relics to attract pilgrims; hence the name of the town.
The Priory is no longer standing but we have various reminders, such as The Priory Centre and Priory Park.
A lovely collage
