St Denys  Hampshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described St Denys like this:

DENYS (St.), a ruined Augustinian priory in South Stoneham parish, Hants; on the river Itchen, adjacent to the South Western railway, 2 miles NNE of Southampton. It was founded by Henry I., and put over nearly all the churches of Southampton by Henry II.; yet never was very large or rich. The only remnant of it is an ivy-covered wall, with a piscina.
