Above is another map, presented in Magnet number , of Greyfriars locality. The text associated with it was The innumerable requests that have been received from time to time from Magnet readers for the publication of a map which will show the lie of the land around Greyfriars school, will be satisfied at last! From his own intimate acquaintance with hundreds of Mr.
Frank Richards' stories, and aided by data supplied by ourselves, he produced this detailed plan, which I think you will agree, is a very fine piece of work, and one which will repay very careful study on your part. Frank Richards' own comment is : "This map is astonishingly like my own idea of the vicinity of Greyfriars School. There is also an alternative view of the Greyfriars Locality, that you can see in detail by clicking this button.
This map drawn around seems to have been based on a drawing that appeared in , in Magnet Number That original drawing was reportedly done by H. Twyman, then an office boy on the Companion papers, who later rose to become editor of Union Jack and Detective Weekly. As you can see, the three maps don't quite agree as to the correct layout of things around Greyfriars.
It is my belief that the first map is the more accurate.
You will just have to make up your own mind as to which map, you think, is more accurate! How is Greyfriars school laid out? The following map of the school is an enlarged version of the insert on the locality map. The above plans are the floor layout of the main school building. I have modified the original drawings by naming each room on the map rather than having to look each room up by number index as on the original drawings. Press the button for details.

The monks, or friars, hid themselves for a time in the crypt, and lived in the vaults between the priory and the chapel. These were in a good state of repair in those days. But somebody, for a large reward offered by the King, betrayed the monks, and brought them up before Henry, who told the friars they would be allowed to go free if they revealed the whereabouts of the far-famed Grey Friars' treasure.
But the brave old friars would not say a word, so the King had them all executed. Henry afterwards organised many search parties, but the friars had hidden the treasure securely. To this day it has not been found.
For many years after that the monastery was allowed to go to decay. In , Edward VI restored it and opened it as a school for poor, but studious boys, whose parents could not afford to have them educated. This prospered slowly until the reign of Charles II, when a newly-erected wing and two-thirds of the original building were burnt to the ground. Fifty years later a good college was built for gentlemen's sons. In , Greyfriars, as it now stands, was started on the career it has achieved today.

The only reminders we have of olden days are now in complete ruin. East of the cloisters there is the curious, old, ivy-covered tower surrounded by a mass of fallen pillars of masonry. This, and the shady grass-covered land around, is all that is left of the famous old monastery of the first Grey Friars. Passes out of gates are given on application to, and at the discretion of, any master or prefect. Failure to observe the times and regulations stipulated above will be reported to the Form-master of the delinquent, or, in exceptional cases, to the Headmaster.
