Oakford Priory – Verulam

I visited Oakford Priory near Hazelmere Dam and was able to photograph parts of the school and the Priory and the memorials commemorating those Dominican Sisters who served there. Sadly there seems to some dispute over access to the site and the buildings are in need of repair. I was mentioning my visit to a friend Robin, who as a youngster ran away from home but soon realized life was tough on the “outside” and him and his friend ended up at Oakford, where his friends sister was a nun. They were royally fed and sent home!
