Medieval Preceptory, Low Chibburn


In Low Chibburn, near Widdrington, are the remains of a preceptory (monestary) of the Knights Hospitallers. The buildings stood beside the Dunbar Burn, a small stream, used to feed a moat around the preceptory. In the 16th century the building was reused as a house.[1] Part of the chapel was converted into a pillbox during the Second World War. The preceptory is a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
