The Charterhouse

Description

The Carthusian Priory of St Anne-a unique Grade 1 listed building and grounds, surrounded by parkland in the centre of Coventry.

Charterhouse is a grade I listed 14th Century Carthusian Monastery, one of only nine ever built in Britain. The Carthusian order was a silent order. Sadly it suffered at the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries when the Chapel and other religious buildings were destroyed and used as building materials.

The Charterhouse is owned by Historic Coventry Trust and is working in partnership with Coventry City Council and Heritage Lottery Fund to restore the building and open to the public as a heritage visitor centre and educational attraction.
