EXETER GREYFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

Franciscan Friary moved to this site to the South of the town walls by Bishop Bytten between 1292-1307 from a site in Bartholomew street (see SX99SW275). Dissolved in 1538. Excavations at the junction of Holloway Street and Friars Gate in 1973, and a sewer trench dug along Friars Gate in 1980, revealed the east end of a chapel containing six burials and the robbed remains of the probable north wall of the church, just north of which was a stone-lined latrine or garderobe pit. To the south, presumably within the church, were a number of burials.
