Approximate modern location: Near Brocklesby, Northwest of Grimsby, in the County of Lincoln.

Elm-Number [See below]: 26*

Other Comments: The first Premonstratensian house established in England.  Only isolated stones now remain, along with some foundation landforms and ditches.  The land is private property and discourages visitors.
