The site of the alien priory of Minting, suppressed by 1403. The site was granted in 1421 to Mount Grace Priory, North Yorkshire, as a grange. The earthworks visible represent stock compounds, yards, ponds and the grange buildings within a small moat. A broad hollow way connects the moat to the village. The ponds have been cleaned out and enlarged, but the earthworks represent a well-preserved grange of late medieval type. {3}{4}
