Carmelite Order, Berkhamsted, Hereford-Radnor Border, Herts, Presteigne
Nuns build a convent. Every moring 18 nuns don aprons over their habits and start building. They are out to build their own chapel, cloisters, choir and cells. All their building knowledge has been gained from textbooks. The nuns are members of the Carmelite Order, and were moved from Berkhamsted, Herts, to a derelict house at Presteigne, on the Hereford-Radnor Border. Pictured the nuns prepare the ground in front of the Sacristy for the new Chapel which they are to build on 15th March 1954
