BRISTOL WHITEFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of Carmelite friary, founded 1267 and dissolved 1538. Leland described this as the fairest friary in England, and added that it had an aisle and chapels within the church. William of Worcester visited the friary, and paced the length of the church as 45 paces by 25 paces wide. The tower was 200 feet high. Observations of redevelopment of the site in 1904 noted Medieval walling and several inhumations.
