A documentary guide to Caldey Island, the west Wales island home of a Cistercian community dating from the sixth-century. Written by Christopher Howells with photographs by Ross Grieve.
Meet the monks of Caldey Abbey, who continue a monastic tradition begun over 1400 years ago. The book is illustrated with over 150 exclusive photographs of daily life, and the pinnacle of the religious calendar, the Holy Week celebrations. It also follows the history of the Cistercian Order and the birth of the island’s monastic community.
The island community thrives on tourism and this book provides a detailed profile of Caldey’s tourist highlights, including an island map with tourist locations.
