St Mellangell’s Cell

This tranquil monastic retreat is known as St Mellangell’s cell at the Monastery of St Antony & St Cuthbert, Gatten, Shropshire.

Over the last 15 years, Dylan has worked on a number of projects at the monastery. Recently we have completed refurbishment of the chapter house as a guest kitchen, refectory and bathroom facility.

The pictures of St Mellangell’s cell – completed some years ago under the instructions of the monk in residence – are of particular interest. Materials used were collected from demolition building projects though the cell was clad with douglas fir.  The cell has a reclaimed maple floor.
