Title: St Hugh's Monastery, Parkminster
Description: Built in 1877 with a spire that rises 203 feet (62 metres) into the sky, St Hugh's was the first Carthusian monastery built in England after the Reformation. Having cost approximately £200,000 by the time it was completed and French in design, the monks spend two thirds of their time here in silence. The monastery is not open to the public but can be seen from public footpaths that pass along the edge of the grounds.
