Islands like Iona or Lindisfarne are renowned the world over as holy places of Great Britain. But there are other, lesser known, “holy isles” there, and one of them is Caldey Island in Wales, which is home to a Cistercian monastery and has had a monastic presence for over 1000 years.

This lovely 35-minute video provides deeply contemplative footage filmed on Caldey, with narration derived from prayers and meditations from The Book of Silent Prayer. It is both a prayerful and deeply meditative journey into the beauty of nature in this holy place.
