This picture, taken from the footpath crossing the field to the south west of St Cross, shows a tiny part of the Brothers' quarters (the little window in the end gable on the left). The West front of the church is on the right. Also on the right, between the church and the gatehouse, can be seen a section of the Cloisters 'ambulatory'.
The building with the red tiled roof to the left of the gatehouse is the Brethren's Hall, which retains most of its original mediaeval features. Up the stairs is a large room where the twenty five brothers met to eat and socialise, it's still used for special occasions and feast days.
Also within the Brethren's Hall is the kitchen, which was brought up-to-date during
