Reading Rooms & Ashram Refurb

Stable Block Redevelopment

Over the course of the coming months, the stable block at Bhaktivedanta Manor is undergoing a redevelopment to improve the resident facilities upstairs, as well as revamp the current gift shop and create a new eatery and spiritual bookshop on the ground floor.

This will serve the community and visitors by giving the space some much needed care and attention, allowing for improved usage for the community and opportunities to better serve everyone.

The stable block has in the past been used as a school, bakery, main kitchen for prasadam and still currently functions as a gift shop. However, over the last few years, the building is in disrepair and in need of significant remedial works.
