More images from Parkminster

To finish off the series of posts from Parkminster, here are a few more photos. The first gives and idea of the perspective as one looks down the Great Cloister

Yet another Chapel! This is the Family Chapel. The community meet here for prayers before the weekly walk.

And here is the magnificent and atmospheric library.

A closer shot of the far end shows Our Blessed Lady (much loved by the Carthusians) and the crucifix overlooking the place of study.

This is the view of the Guest House from halfway down the stairs. The Guest House is actually older than the main part of the Monastery. It is very grand but not much used.

This is the Bishop's room - actually set out as a throne room. This room has not been used much in recent years.
