BOSTON BLACKFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

Dominican Priory founded in 1222, dissolved in 1539. The church, refectory and other buildings were burnt by miscreants in 1288. An unidentifiable part of the friary remains as an extant building. Excavations in the undercroft of the refectory revealed multiple usage in the post-Mediaeval period, including use as a forge, warehouse, wine store and Baptist Meeting House. Excavations in Spain Lane in the 1990s revealed Mediaeval mortared floors and pits, but no structural features.
