The ruinous, overgrown and dangerous remains of the Grey Friary.


This ancient friary is in very ruinous conditions, most of the building has collapsed and the walls still standing are propped by wooden planks. The building is fenced off and there's a sign that warns the visitors of the danger. The fencing is in the same derelict conditions as the friary and the access to the ruins is easy enough. We did that at our own risk.
The east gable is the more intact, the west section is almost totally missing. All the place is very much overgrown, and taking photographs of the church is a hard task.
