Samatha South - The Southern Centre 

In recent years there has been an appeal and fund raising for a London Samtha centre. The project has now broadened to include the Oxford and Cambridge Sanghas, and it was agreed to look to purchase somewhere roughly equidistant between London, Oxford and Cambridge which could then become a centre for southern England.
