DUNWICH GREYFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

Ruins of a Franciscan friary founded by 1277 and dissolved in 1538. It was originally located nearer the sea but as it was threatened by erosion it was moved to this site in 1290. Surviving remains include the precinct wall with two gatehouses in excellent condition, and the South range of the cloister, possibly the refectory. An evaluation in 1999 located the plan of the church, which was an aisled nave with quire, and confirmed the existence of the extensive East range of the cloister, a north range, and other buildings South of the nave.
