Installation of New Windows in Monastic Library

This week work has commenced on the installation of new windows in the Monastic Library.

The new windows will allow natural light into the library through specialist glass to protect the books. Views from inside the library will include not only a spectacular view of the Abbey Church, but also beautiful countryside views towards Frome. From the outside, visitors will be able to see the hive of activity going on inside the library.

Work is expected to take 6-8 weeks – we will be documenting the process on our social media pages, so keep an eye out on our Twitter (@DownsideKeeper), Facebook (@DownsideAbbeyLibrary) and Instagram (@downsideabbey) to find out more!
