The Benedictine Community of New Norcia is the official title of the group of Roman Catholic monks who have owned and operated the small town of New Norcia, which is located 132km north of Perth in Western Australia, since 1847. New Norcia is Australia’s only monastic town, with the Monastery, where the monks live, work and pray, at its heart.
There are a number of the original farm labourers’ houses still left in this historic town. With walls of wood, they have needed repair as did their shingled roofs and wooden rafters.
Please share your choice of WOOD with us.
