An entrance into Holy Cross Priory off New Walk, a footpath linking the city centre with Victoria Park on the east side of the city. It was a certain Benedict Caestryck (b.1762) from near Poperinghe, Belgium who founded a mission church in Leicester in 1819. The priory however, was not established until 1882. The Dominican friars (a.k.a. the Black Friars) are responsible for the chaplaincies to both of the city’s universities and also to the Royal Infirmary.
