Gloucestershire Poor Clares convent to become luxury hotel


A former 19th Century convent in Gloucestershire is about to be turned into a luxury hotel.

The former convent of Poor Clares in South Woodchester has been on the market for three years after the last of the sisters moved out.

Points West's Gloucestershire reporter Steve Knibbs was shown around by diocesan surveyor Derek Salmon before the keys are handed over.

He also spoke to parishioner Chris Jay.
