Tucked away in Tanners Street stands this complex consisting of a Carmelite Priory (left), the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (with a small Hall below), the Shrine of St Jude, the Carmelite Newsletter Office and a small printing works (let to a separate company).
The building that is now the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel has had a chequered history. It was built by William Hall in 1861, as a Quaker school. William Hall was associated with the gunpowder industry in the town. In 1910 the building was acquired by East Kent Cinemas, and after some alterations opened its doors as the Empire Picture Hall. It ran as a cinema until 1937 when a new picture house was built in the centre of the town.
The building which is now the Priory was built for a tanner called John Gilbert, who died in 1746.
