This locally made tile dating from the middle of the 15th Century is known as the ‘Friends Tile’. The verse printed on it advises the readers to be aware of their mortality and so to give money in their lifetime rather than bequeathing later. Two copies of the tile remain in the Priory. The easiest to find is set into the pillar near the main door, the other (which is rather more worn) is in the bottom row of the upper section of tiles on the wall of the North Choir aisle.
Facsimiles of this tile and others of the Priory's nationally important collection of medieval tiles are on sale in the Friends' Shop.
