Tyne and Wear HER(1426): Newcastle, Trinitarian monastery - Details
Newcastle, Trinitarian monastery
Religious Ritual and Funerary
From 1262 to 1307 there was a Carmelite friary on Wall Knoll. The site was then apparently left vacant until 1360 when it was granted by the friars to William Acton to found a hospital in honour of the Holy Trinity for a warden, 2 priest brothers, 3 clerks to teach in the school and instruct in the chapel, and 3 poor and infirm persons. The house was suppressed in 1539 when it contained only a "prior". The site of the buildings is not known, nor how much of the friary remained for the Trinitarians to use, and what they may have built themselves. It seems impossible that anything remained of the building after the making of City Road.
