The (current) Priory Church building at Leominster

Leominster nunnery was an Anglo-Saxon nunnery at Leominster, Herefordshire, England. Founded in the ninth century, the nunnery is known to have been active in the eleventh century.[1] The exact location of the nunnery is not known, but it may have been the site later occupied by Leominster Priory, a twelfth-century foundation.
