Medieval priory uncovered in Wombridge

The ruins of a medieval priory have been uncovered in the grounds of a Shropshire church by volunteers.

The Reverend Kevin Evans, of Wombridge Parish Church, Telford, said the ruins had been known about for some time, but had never been investigated.

As many as 50 volunteers have been involved in the dig, helping to clear earth and rubble.

Archaeologist Dr Malcolm Hislop said it could prove "one of the most important medieval monuments in Telford"
