One of the only buildings that remain today of the former Blackfriars Priory in Canterbury., is the refectory on the east bank of the River Stour..
In 1237 Henry II granted the Dominicans land within the city walls, £500 and timber for the roofs to build a church and priory.
This is a view of the north west corner of the refectory with its 13th century north wall made of flint and local Blean Forest ‘pudding Stone.’
From the woody parkland opposite the refectory, on land known as Solleys Orchard, you can almost see the Friars walking towards what once were wooden bridges connecting the buildings across the river.
