Running your own Day Retreats

You are warmly invited to our rural chapel and garden to undertake your own day retreat. Our retreat centre is set in a beautiful position on the Berks/Hants border. Walks on the adjoining common or woodland, which has a lake, are highly recommended. Individual maps are available showing routes to suit all abilities. These include a walk around the Silchester Roman Wall and Amphitheatre.
