WHITEFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

Carmelite Friary founded in 1272, dissolved in 1538. The friary was excavated in 1935 by Stebbing. Rigold (1965) reinterpretted the 1936 interim report with the aid of additional notes and photographs. From these, he concludes the following. The church lay to the North of the claustral complex, consisting of a nave of 7 bays and a quire of 4 bays, the quire showing a distinct Northward deflection. The East range had the slype and chapter house, and the South side had the refectory. Part of the West range was excavated, but there was not enough evidence to identify functionality. Stebbing's original report referred to building foundations South and West of the cloister, which Rigold interprets as being a secondary, South or outer cloister.
