Archaeologists exploring the foundations of the historic Merton Priory Chapter House have uncovered foundations of cloister walls.

Trenches dug by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) team have revealed the flint foundations of four of the Priory's walls, including the south transept of the Priory itself.

Haverstock architects are working with Merton Priory Trust to plan a future display of the previously hidden remains.

Founded in 1117, Merton Priory was one of the country's most influential monastic houses until its dissolution in 1538.

A new museum designed by Haverstock architects to improve visitors' experience of the site is due to open in 2017.
