More medieval Stamford: Greyfriars Gatehouse

St Leonard's Priory wasn't the only relic I found when I went to look for medieval Stamford.

Greyfriars was a Franciscan friary that flourished in the town from the early 13th century until Henry VIII suppressed it. Joan of Kent, wife of the Black Prince and mother of Richard II, was buried here.

All that remains of the friary today is this gatehouse beside Stamford Hospital and it does look as though it was much altered in later centuries.
