The name Charterhouse has nothing to do with a charter or grant, as would at first appear, but arose from the building of a house for Carthusian monks from Chartreuse, their original monastic foundation in the Diocese of Grenoble in France. In Coventry it was in 1381 when Lord de la Zouch founded the house for six monks. King Richard laid the foundation stone. They increased in number, never going outside the walls, did not socialise with women, vegetarians six days a week - on Fridays they fasted with only bread and water.

Does this also include plans to clear trees blocking the view of the viaduct?

I've heard they are opening up the air raid shelter opposite the Charterhouse field as part of the project. Does anyone know if they are just going to remove the current gates on the blast doors, or are they removing the whole wall to open the whole arch

Question

Not sure about what work will be included but the shelter was the original entrance to the cemetery for the funeral bier which was also stored to the side. Thanks again to Derek (Robthu) on here for giving me a great insight into LRC! There's not a lot inside today (c) Duane Mann on FB

How did you get in, Robthu? Both gates were padlocked when I went last week.

No! For once in this Warwickshire man's life, it was all legal and above board, it was unlocked and I went in as part of a Bat Survey. The downside of it was, I had only a small camera in my pocket that certainly wasn't up to that sort of thing. Derek.
