One of the most complete surviving friaries of Dominican 'black friars' in England, later converted into a Tudor house and cloth factory. Notable features include the church and the fine scissor-braced dormitory roof. English Heritage is undertaking work to bring parts this medieval Dominican friary into use as a performing arts centre. This will include installing new internal and external lighting, heating and improving access to the building. The current works, which are funded by English Heritage and the South West Regional Development Agency, are part of its continuing history and will give the building a new lease of life. In the short term this means closing Gloucester Blackfriars to the public, whilst it is a building site, until further notice. Later this year (2011), we hope to have an operator in place who will be able to open the monument to the public on a more regular basis. More details to follow! Until 27 August, Phil Moss Tours will be running tours of the property at 3pm each Sunday.
