This is a life of prayer and contemplation, but we also have to earn our own living.

‘Idleness is the enemy of the soul. Therefore, the sisters should have specified periods for manual labour as well as for prayerful reading’
[ The Rule of St Benedict 48.1 ]

The Abbey Bakery was established in 1991 and is our principal source of income; we bake, cut, pack and dispatch three sizes of altar breads all over the UK; small, large and concelebration bread.

Our breads are creamy white with random small crosses one side and plain the other. They do not have sealed edges and each bread is unique

We also retail sealed edge white and wholemeal breads and gluten free.

We welcome new customers.
