The priory at Newark, near Ripley, Surrey, can be dated back to the 12th century where records show substatial land was granted to Augustinian monks to build a church. It was dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and to Saint Thomas Beckett. The priory was dissolved during the time of Henry VIII and fell into ruin, with some locals using stone to mend a road. It is a Grade I listed building, on private land, but an Easter Service is held annually at 06:00, run by local churches.
