The Crypt owes its origin to a chamberlain of the priory during the time of Bishop Gundulph. Originally known as Saint George & Dragon, the building burned down in 1768 & the present structure was created over the vault. The Vault was rediscovered only in 2002.
The chamber is 54ft long, 16ft wide & 11ft high with 4 quadripartite vaults, the shell of the vault being made up of chalk ashlars. There are ribs on the groins with 9 carved ornamental bosses at the intersections.
The Crypt is also said to mark the site of the Church of St Mary, within The Walled City of Rochester, but has never been found.
Breakfast Option One: 2 sausages, 2 bacon, 2 eggs, 2 hash browns, beans, mushrooms & toast.
Breakfast Option Two: 2 vegan sausages, avocado, 2 hash brown, mushroom, toast & spinach.
