Finding Pontefract’s Black Friars – Tues 4 Aug

TUESDAY 4TH AUGUST – CARLETON GRANGE – 7:30 PM

St Richard’s Dominican Friary in Pontefract was one of 56 Dominican friaries in England by 1300. However, its exact location remained unknown until the demolition of the old A&E department presented the opportunity to locate the missing friary. Simon Tomson, Excavation Field Director for Pontefract and District Archaeological Society presents a talk on the excavations which took place in 2011/2012 and what was discovered.

Admission: £2 members, £3 non-members

Refreshments will be served after the talk
