Greyfriars Chapel is the only building now remaining of the first English Franciscan Friary built in the years following the arrival of the first Friars in 1224, during the life time of St. Francis of Assisi. The first Franciscan Friary on this site grew into a considerable monastery, but this was dissolved in 1538 under King Henry VIII's orders and the brothers banished.
