Clare Priory near Clare, Suffolk, Kingdom of England. The original buildings still remain in use to this day.

A priory is a monastery of men or women under religious vows that is headed by a prior or prioress. Priories may be houses of mendicant friars or nuns (such as the Dominicans, Augustinians, Franciscans, and Carmelites, for instance), or monasteries of monks or nuns (as with the Benedictines). Houses of canons regular and canonesses regular also use this term, the alternative being "canonry". The de Clare family founded many Priories throughout the Kingdom of England.
