    From Hugh:

    Of course we used to have some contact with Woodchester; I remember at least one occasion when the upper half of Llanarth was bussed there to sing at a Requiem Mass for a deceased Dominican, and we were given a guided tour of the domestic buildings, In those days there were actually a few novices.

    Thanks Richard for the Laxton photos. I only ever saw the place from the outside, and not until 3 or 4 years after the school closed.
