AboutIn 2008 the monastic community of Prinknash moved back to its former home, the medieval St Peter’s Grange, leaving the 1972 Abbey. The Grange previously served as a monastery from 1928 until 1972, and thereafter as a retreat centre for men and women. Visit the small monastic café and shop, which sells light refreshments, monastic gifts and books, from Wednesday to Sunday. Adjacent to Prinknash Bird and Deer Park.
Visit our Monastery shop and cafe. The children will enjoy the bird and deer park and play area.
