Sisters’ Lodge

Sisters’ lodge (2010)

The Sisters’ Lodge (sometimes referred to as a Pavilion) was built in 1925-26. Situated in the Monastery Woods, the lodge is a place of peace for the Sisters who wish to stay there. It has all the necessary comforts “electricity, gas and water facilities,” which have made it possible…”for the sisters to enjoy periods of relaxation during summer or winter.”
