I work in the Blackfriars area and ventured further South on foot towards Elephant and Castle yesterday. I noticed a sign on a building "The Priory". I think it was in Lancaster St. off Blackfriars Rd.

Does anyone know what this is? I guess it is not a branch of the famous Priory or maybe it is.

The area is fascinating you notice something different each time you wander off the main track.

It's just opposite the top of Lancaster Street on Webber Street I think.

I pass it every day on my route to work and it seems to have been done up a little lately but it seems to be mostly residential units now. I have no idea what it might have been in a prior life.

This is really annoying - I walked past it every day for two years in the late 1980s and can't remember what it was!

Some property info from when the garden flat was on the market...
