The Charterhouse is a magnificent building in London EC1, dating back to the 14th Century. It is an almshouse: home to a group of elderly people, who are known as Brothers. These days, some of the Brothers are women, but they are still known as Brothers. It also houses an Infirmary for care of the frail elderly.
In the past it has been has been a monastery, grand mansion, and boys school as well as an almshouse. There is a museum on the site, which is fascinating, and a restful chapel.
in 2016-2018 I drew some pictures in The Charterhouse as a guest of the then preacher, Reverend Robin Isherwood. Thank you to him, and to the Master and Brothers of The Charterhouse for making me so welcome.
Click on the pictures below to see more information. I drew these pictures when I was a bit less adept at photographing them than I am now. If you’d like to use a picture you’d be very welcome, but please contact me: I will give you a high resolution digital image which will reproduce much better than a download from this website.
