Newstead Priory is an extra parochial area; Newstead Abbey which was formed from the original priory was Lord Byron's ancestral home.
Byron described the ruined priory:
"A glorious remnant of the Gothic pile
stood half apart
In a grand arch which once screened many an aisle.
These last had disappeareda loss to art:
The first yet frowned superbly o'er the soil,
And kindled feelings in the roughest heart,
Which mourned the power of Time's or Tempest's march,
In gazing on that venerable arch."
