I have it from a reliable source that the Benedictine monks are to leave St Augustine’s Abbey in Ramsgate.
For some I suppose this will mean a real estate opportunity, after all I suppose in the strictest sense it is already a HMO.
For others this will be a sad end to this long relationship with Thanet, though I suppose for most of Thanet’s residents if there are any feelings at all it will be those of indifference.
I am thinking Eliot here not George: “No compliment can be eloquent, except as an expression of indifference”. But T S “indifference abides the growth and decay proper to human experience” it wasn’t always the case.
The picture above shows their was shrine, apparently it was desecrated so often by anti-Catholics that the monks had to remove it.
