Buckfast Abbey in the 1950s

Here is documentary on monastic life made in the 1950s. It features extensive footage of Buckfast (St Mary's) Abbey in Devon.

This is a wonderful opportunity to see the Buckfast brethren of the 1950s. For those who have not visited this wonderful place this old film gives a view of different parts of the abbey. Many of these views would only be seen by male guests at the abbey or monks.

By divine providence I offer Divine Worship here every Sunday afternoon. I recognise the abbey building well from this footage. Deo gratias for the blessings of this house.
