The Charterhouse, London Road - Coventry

Founded as a Carthusian Monastery dedicated to St Anne, the surviving building is a mixture of stone, brick and timber frame construction incorporating centuries of change and adaptation. Wall paintings survive from the C15 and C16. Areas of structural instability need to be addressed, the clay tile roof covering is in poor condition and there is evidence of water damage within the building. Now in the ownership of the Historic Coventry Trust, the building is part of a major regeneration project supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England grants.
