Pugin’s Abbey Church St Augustine’s Ramsgate

This church is open to the public every Sunday from 2pm until 4pm and I recommend taking the opportunity to visit this iconic Ramsgate Building.

At the moment the future of the church is uncertain as the monks are leaving Ramsgate, services there are conducted by the incumbent of St Ethelbert’s Church, he is also leaving and it is uncertain if his replacement will be prepared to take on both churches.

Because of this there is a possibility that at some time in the future there may be no, or very limited public access, which is another reason to take advantage.

I have taken the liberty of adding the Pugin Society’s leaflet about the Abbey at the bottom of the page of pictures.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
