Keys to the Past Web Site: Hulne Priory was a Carmelite friary founded in 1240 and possibly the first one established in England. At the time of the Dissolution the church was dissolved in 1538 but parts of the building remain. These include a tower and precinct wall, given to the abbey in 1488 to defend the church, and main claustral buildings. Lesser buildings survive only as foundations. Excavations at the end of the 19th century exposed the ground plan of the abbey and part of an Anglo-Saxon cross shaft was found.
