BAMBURGH FRIARY

DESCRIPTION + /

Dominican Friary founded in 1265 and dissolved in 1539. Remains of the friary are incorporated in later buildings, although the remains are not diagnostic. Evaluation ahead of conversion of farm buildings to domestic use at The Friars in 1992 revealed the extant of the friary complex. The north wall of the farm building block was found to incorporate the north wall of the conventual church of the Friary, and further trial trenches revealed the extent of the cloister to the South of the church, and buildings to the South-East. The church had a short North aisle of 3-bays which was demolished after the dissolution. The entire complex was then converted into a defendable domestic hose, retaining the closter as a courtyard. This in turn was demolished and replaced by the farmhouse in the 18th century
