York Franciscan Friary was a friary in York, North Yorkshire, England. It was located between York Castle and the River Ouse. In 1538, it fell victim to Henry VIII's Dissolution of the Monasteries.[1] All that now remains of it is a stone wall on King's Staith, adjacent to the Davy Tower on the York city walls.[2]
