What a magnificent place; one is surrounded by beauty, glorious windows from ancient depictions of the Scriptures to modern interpretations. The fragrance is gentle - age, flowers, incense, more - very pleasant. We visited on a sunny October day and felt very comforted and welcome.

Only spent a few minutes here but it was just to check it out for someone else. Very impressed with the help and a child's leaflet for finding items. Plenty of squirrels in the grounds
