An Augustinian friary known as the Austin Friary was established in 1313 when Simon de Montecute gave a group of friars 100 square feet (9.3 m2 ) of land within the Temple Gate of Bristol. This religious group constructed a pipe system to supply themselves with water from a reservoir on the west bank of the Avon, the reservoir being fed from a spring. This spring site is on “Pylle Hill”, a word thought to be derived from the Welsh word pil, meaning a creek, a term used in this area. Apparently this piped water system served its purpose until the C19th. The prior and six remaining friars surrendered the friary, its contents and vestments to commissioner Richard Youngworth in 1538 during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. The red car is parked on Cambridge Street and the other vehicles on Bellevue Road.
