Location :
City of Derby
Non Civil Parish
Grid Ref : SK3480036320
Summary : Dominican friary, founded before 1239, dissolved in 1539. Site now occupied by an 18th century building, Friary Hotel (SK33NW76), which does not appear to incorporate material from the friary.
More information : [SK 34803632] Friary Hotel on site of Friary [GT]. (1)

A Priory of Dominican Friars at Derby, founded before 1239 and dissolved in 1539,(2) stood on the site of the present Friary Hotel, a mid-18th cent. building. A much older wall exists behind the hotel, and there are the remains of an earlier building in the cellars which may well be part of the old Friary. (2-3)

There is no material earlier than 18th cent. in the hotel exterior; the rear is completely modern. Some of the cellar fabric may be medieval but cannot be conclusively dated. (4)
