The site of the night stairs from the dorter at Dundrennan Abbey are located in the south transept.
The dorter was located above the chapter house, and remains of one of the windows can be seen in the upper section.
The reredorter was located at the southern end of the range.
The frater or refectory at Finchale Priory lies on the south side of the cloister. It dates to the early 14th century.
Access was via an arched doorway in the south-west corner of the cloister, with steps up to the frater.
Below the frater is a vaulted cellar.
The charnel house at Bury St Edmunds lay within the precinct of the abbey, just to the south of the west end. It lies in what is now the Great Cemetery. This structure was built by Abbot John Northwold (d. 1301) [see ODNB]. This was constructed to take the bones of the dead recovered from the construction of new graves.
The dorter lay on the east side of the cloister, above the chapter house. The night stairs to it were in the north transept of the abbey church. The dorter was accessed through a round doorway.
The day stairs to the dorter lay in the north-east corner of the cloister, on the south side of the dorter. Note the roof line of the dorter on the exterior of the north transept of the church.
The reredorter lay on the east side of the dorter.
John Howard, the First Duke of Norfolk, was killed at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 where he was commanding the part of Richard III’s army.
His tomb appears to be located in a tomb constructed on the north side of the aisle of the church at Thetford Priory, and adjacent to the north transept. The body may have been moved to St Michael’s, Framlingham.
The tomb of Thomas Howard (1443-1524), Second Duke of Norfolk, was placed at the east end of the original church (that had been extended). He defeated the army of James IV of Scotland at Flodden in September 1513.
Howard died at Framlingham Castle in May 1524 and his body was buried at Thetford.
