The Lost Priories of London

July 3rd  -  On this day in 1322, hundreds of needy poor people were crushed to death in a rush to beg food and money at the gates of Blackfriars’ (Dominican) Priory. 

The site of the Blackfriars’ (Dominican) Priory, and later Theatre, is visited on our Wednesday afternoon “St Paul’s to Westminster Abbey – Priories, Palaces and Parliament” and Friday morning “London Wall – A Story of Survival” walks.
