SUDBURY BLACKFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

Dominican Friary founded before 1247, surrendered 1539 and demolished to make way for a dwelling house. Excavation on the site in 1970 revealed building remains; the earliest pottery recovered was of 12th century date. The alleged Priory Wall on the south side of Friar Street is actually the sleeper wall of the later Priory Gate, a 16th century gatehouse built shortly before the dissolution, (see TL84SE88).
