Hi Kevin, I'll certainly keep my eyes open for this missing Caldey stamp. It's such a shame they stopped doing them as it's another lost source of income, as we all know monking isn't cheap these days.
They regularly turn up (sometimes in larger numbers than you would wish) in collections or bulk packets. Also worth looking out for are any covers franked with the 'Museum' cancel as it was only in use for a few weeks.
I have been trying to get hold of a FDC for the 2001 red lighthouse stamp. Have everything else and have even been told they didn't do any. But that doesn't deter me - I WANT ONE !!!!

For more information on the monks of Caldey Island read the Aberystwyth Louie Knight novels by Malscolm Pryce. You'd be surprised what they get up to when they go AWOL

I didn't realise that the monks had stopped issuing stamps. I know that they haven't issued any new stamps for a long time but thought that the old ones were still available.
 
I know that they have stopped producing white chocolate as the Monks thought that there was not enough demand. They only make the milk chocolate now. Apparantly, the shop staff in Tenby did not agree but how do you argue with a monk?
 
When I am next in Tenby, I will visit the shop and check.  If the stamps are available, does anyone here want me to pick some up?
