History of the London Charterhouse - A One-hour Lecture on 7 February 2018
The Charterhouse has been living the nation’s history since 1348. Founded as a burial ground for victims of the Black Death, a Carthusian monastery was built on the site which prospered for 160 years until it was dissolved by agents of King Henry VIII. A grand mansion was built from monastic ruin inhabited by some of the most notable Tudor figures of the day. But it was in 1611 that Thomas Sutton purchased the site and established the country’s most significant charity which still bears his name.
