The Yellow Steeple, Trim

Map Reference: N803569 (2803, 2569)

The Yellow Steeple is part of the Augustinian Priory of St Mary which was founded in the 13th century. There are two walls of a very tall tower with a two-light pointed window near the top. There are traces of vaulting above the ground floor and the fourth floor.

The doorway is now capped by a lintel which appears to have come from a two-light window with ogee heads. To the left of the entrance is a spiral stairway which rises to roof level, but it cannot now be climbed owing to a large gap near the bottom.
