Site of Franciscan Friary
Site of Franciscan Friary
Lichfield's Franciscan Friary was founded during the reign of Henry III in 1237. After just over three centuries the Friary was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1538. In the early 20th century the site was threatened with development. An archaeological excavation took place here in 1933 and revealed the extent and the ruins. As a result it became a Scheduled Ancient Monument and thus protecting the site from development.
