Franciscan friary founded in 1226 by John de Hastingford in a house in Ciningsford, 250m South of the cathedral. During the early 14th century the friary was extended and included the construction of a new church. The nave was 105ft. long and the cloister on the north side of the nave was a square of its full length.The friary was dissolved in 1538. Excavations in the mid-1990's recovered much of the plan of the friary and part of the cemetery was also excavated.
