If you venture up to the priory arch you will find a new information board within the bounds of the old Bicknacre Priory to show the results of archaeological tests carried out over several years. The Maldon Archaeological and Historical Group conducted surveys employing various methods, including ground penetrating radar, and using this information together with the dimensions of similar Augustinian priories around the country have come up with a plan of the probable dimensions and position of the priory. The corners of the main church building are marked on the ground by square paving slabs.
The board, erected by the Friends of Priory Fields, also shows a drawing of what the whole priory probably looked like in its prime.
The excellent artwork was created for us by Rod Brown who is a resident of Bicknacre.
