Yesterday, on the way to Oxford with a friend, I stopped at Farnborough Abbey, which was an important site for the Liturgical Movement of the 20th century.
Abbot Cuthbert showed us around. He was very kind.
They recently acquired the spectacular marble altars from Mill Hill, which are now being installed.
Napolean III is buried in the crypt.
The church has some splendid gargoyles!
We stayed long enough for Nones, before having to leave. You can see and hear a short clip.
The Abbot gave me some interesting books, which I will report on when I have a little more time.
I am grateful to Abbot Cuthbert for the kindness he showed us during the all too brief visit.
