CANTERBURY BLACKFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of a Dominican friary, founded circa 1236 and dissolved in 1538. The remains consist of the 14thc Frater in Blackfriars Street, now part of the King's school and used as the art department and the 13thc Guest House on the opposite side of the River Stour. Excavations in 1969 and 1970 have revealed the Cloisters, Chapter House, Church, and a domestic building dated circa 1595. The church was begun in 1237 and almost completed by 1244; the other buildings appear to have been built by 1260.
