This monastic house belonged to one of the first groups of Carmelites (or White Friars) to set up a community in England. It was founded by William de Vesci in 1242, a couple of miles up the River Aln from Alnwick. It was solidly built and heavily fortified with a thick curtain wall, as can be seen in the print, which is 12 feet tall.
