Clairvaux Trappist Mission 1896

Clairvaux (Clear View) Trappist Mission overlooking the Mzinga River, near Mpendle, now consists only of the Church built in 1914. The rest of the structures are represented only by foundations. I arrived at the Mission at dawn and although I couldn’t enter the church managed to get some interior images through the broken windows. The early morning light coming through the stain glass windows provided a beautiful golden glow.

More images of this mission can be found under Gallery- Churches & Missions – Clairvaux
