Elmore Abbey

Having purchased a building near Newbury the brethren at Elmore Abbey wanted to add an oratory and colonnade to link several buildings.


Project profile

To provide the tranquil surrounding required of an oratory the residents at Elmore Abbey chose a beautifully crafted oak timber framed building. The construction is an aisled arched braced truss and Carpenter Oak & Woodland also built the various screens that divide the space internally. The colonnade of solid turned oak pillars provides a covered link between buildings on the site.
