Great Yarmouth, Greyfriars Cloisters

NHER 4297

Greyfriars Cloister, the remains of a 13th century friary of Franciscan 'grey friars' was later swallowed up by Row development and converted into a number of dwellings. Traces of their interior features can still be seen on the brick built walls of parts of the cloister and church, laid bare by wartime bombing. Early 14th century wallpaintings were discovered here in the 1960s and can be seen in the Great Yarmouth Row Houses. The cloisters are owned and managed by English Heritage.
