Mount St Bernard’s Monastery and British Banknotes

As a family we regularly¬† visit the monastery which is about ten miles from our home. The monks produce fine Trappist beer (Tynt Meadow) as well as having a beautiful walk around its grounds. At the entrance to the church are two stone carvings, one of the first Abbot. His face looks out with authority and welcome. I think the Britannia notes, especially the B277 and B280 ones, exhibit an image that is so attractive to collectors. If you don’t have a B277 or B280 note, have a look on the site for one….you might find them very appealing.
