Title A nun from the Poor Clares spins wool in her cell
Description A nun from the Order of Poor Clare’s spins wool in her convent cell in Bullingham. The nuns’ lives were very austere. They didn’t sleep in beds, but something like an arm chair that was as hard as nails. They sometimes had to ring the bell to alert neighbours or well wishers to the fact that they didn’t have any food and were in need of ‘charity’.
