Beaulieu Abbey Church Cross

A unique project that took some long time to come to fruition.  The result is spectacular – the cross itself is gilded and painted in Cistercian red.  One of the many lovely aspects about this commission is that the cross is made up of the old oak Memorial Cross which was presented to Beaulieu Abbey […]
