"Lichfield Friary" Lichfield Off The Beaten Path Tip by leics
Lichfield Off The Beaten Path: 4 reviews and 5 photos
Nothing much remains of what was once a rather large establishment, dating from 1230. The Friary was destroyed on the orders of King Henry Vlll (as were many religious establishments), and only a few of its walls are marked out on the site after excavations discovered their position. Many 'dressed' stones are visible on the edges of the grass, however, and a little of the original wall.
Across the road you can see the remains of a Friary building incorporated into a more recent one. See photos.
The Heritage Trail on the weblink will guide you to the Friary's location within the city.
