The History of Charterhouse

SPEAKER: Paul Greenwell

Saturday, September 17 at 11am, at
the Charterhouse

The Charterhouse was founded by Sir Michael de la Pole in 1384 as an arms house for the elderly and continues to this day to house elderly residents. The Charterhouse was also the birth place of the famous poet Andrew Marvell.

The Book of Common Prayer is used exactly as it has been since 1662, with the setting for the Holy Communion by John
Merbecke of 1550. The beautiful Geor gian communion plate from 1750 has been used ever since.

In this talk Canon Paul Greenwell will explore the history of the charity from its earliest days to the present time.
