Studley Priory, Warwickshire, was a priory in Warwickshire, England.

The Augustinian priory was founded in the 12th century by Peter Corbizun[1] but was closed at the dissolution under Henry VIII and was used as a source of stone for other local buildings. Nothing remains today apart from the use of the name priory in a few local building names such as Priory Farm, which now much modernized, embodies a few fragmentary portions of a conventual building. A gabled west wall of stone rubble contains the remains of a large 14th-century window. A few medieval sculptured fragments are built on to the walls.[2]
