The Carthusian monastery of St Hugh's Charterhouse in Cowfold, West Sussex, was originally

The Carthusian monastery of St Hugh's Charterhouse in Cowfold, West Sussex, was originally built to house up to 250 monks. When I visited in 1994 there were only 23 monks in the religious community although their numbers have risen a bit now. All of them, novices and the abbot alike, glide serenely along on bicycles for trips round the cloisters from their cells to prayer and work. The monastery is so vast, covering a 240 acre site, that bikes are the most practical way for the brothers to get around it

Silent Order... These 22 monks had recorded a plainchant meditation CD to raise money

Silent Order... These 22 monks had recorded a plainchant meditation CD to raise money to restore their 125 year old monastery of St Hugh's Charterhouse in Sussex. After being invited into their Vespers service late at night, only five minutes were allocated to take the photograph of the praying monks, including lighting the dark chapel. There were just 450 Carthusian monks at the time of this picture...worldwide....and 28 of them lived in St Hugh's Charter-house, Parkminster, the only Carthusian monastery in Britain. . In 1998 the Parkminster monks made a foray into the outside world. They decided to break their 900-year silence to share something of their hidden lives by recording an album of their Night Office chants, In the Silence of the Word. The Night Office consists of chanting and prayers which last from midnight to 3am, every night

Soldier and penguin on a beach in the Falkland Islands in 1983

Soldier and penguin on a beach in the Falkland Islands in 1983 - this 1980s image of a young military man armed after the Falklands Conflict is famous and award winning for the photographer, Roger Bamber. On patrol with British Armed Forces on West Falklands Island. This is Private Jack Frost (yes, that really was his name, poor kid, which is why he was selected for Penguin Patrol on the day) who was serving in the Falklands a year after the conflict, in August 1983. The cunning plan was to have him posing amongst a sea of Gentoo Penguins. Two sweaty hours later we had managed to round up precisely one baffled bird. Penguins run faster than you'd think
