Had the opportunity to visit the Charterhouse Priory over heritage weekend. The tour was really informative, and it was fantastic to see inside the building, and see the paintings and wall decorations. Look forward to seeing how the restoration goes.

For years I have utilised the Charterhouse fields in a number of ways. When living nearby I would always have the Charterhouse fields as part of my runs. When coming from the back I really enjoyed the path that takes you through the old wall....More
