Visit to Bhaktivedanta Manor
Sunday 21st August @ 9:00 am to 6:00 pm
Meet at East Croydon by 09:50 for the 10:03 train
Back in the 70’s George Harrison bought the Hare Krishna movement a manor house in Hertfordshire. 50 years later it’s still going strong.
Visitors are welcome, and there are lots of activities.
You don’t need to join their cult to enjoy the visit, just tell them you are already in COPSE. There is no entrance fee, but it would be fair for us to all make a donation.
We have an offer from them to open their old gate in the village, which is usually locked, to let us in on foot. We could get our own monk to open the magic door to let us in like VIPs (Very Important Pilgrims). This might or might not happen. If not we can walk down to the main entrance by Holland Farm, as shows on the map below.
They offer free food, but it might still be a good idea to bring snacks and drinks.
The network of many footpaths would allow us to take an alternative route back to the station. Also we could continue West to return by Watford Junction.
