Bellot's stay in England starts on 27 september 1902, when he is coming to the community of Solesmes, to become a monk. He became a Postulant on 6 october 1902. He made his monastic profession on 29 may 1904. The Benedictine community asks Bellot to pick up his old work, because they need an architect to build them a new abbey. The work at Oosterhout and Quarr started almost at the same time, and from 1910 until 1914 Bellot stays mostly in Quarr to lead the construction of the abbey. In 1914 Bellot moves to Oosterhout, where he is given permission to start his own atelier in the new St. Pauls abbey. In 1937 Dom Bellot also stays for a short period in Quarr abbey.
