High Mass Downside Abbey June 21 at 11.00 am

There will be a High Mass, in the Extraordinary Form, in Downside Abbey on June 21st at 11.00a.m.

The sermon will be given by the Abbot of Downside.

For anyone planning to get to Downside from the Bath side, I've always found it takes me quite considerably longer than I had anticipated from looking on a map, due to the hilly countryside and long stretches of road with no overtaking and some speed restrictions. But it really is just a case of leaving an extra half hour or so. The Abbey is magnificently situated on the Foss Way, the ancient Roman Road running South from Bath, in the centre of Stratton-on-the-Fosse village and the great central tower of the Abbey Church reigns over the surrounding countryside.
