PRESTON GREYFRIARS

DESCRIPTION + /

Franciscan friary founded circa 1260, dissolved 1539. The buildings consisted of a small quadrangle with cloisters and a chapel. After the Dissolution, the priory was used as a house of correction between circa 1680 and 1789. The shell of the chapel was still in existence at the beginning of the 19th century. The site is now occupied by a foundry. Excavations South of Barracks Street found the Mediaeval deposits to be largely destroyed by post-Mediaeval activity, and no trace of the friary was located.
