Charterhouse

May 27th, 2011 by admin

Ignoramus that I am, I had no idea that a Charterhouse exclusively signifies a Carthusian Monastery (not a school as I had imagined!)

In Italy we saw the one at Padula which is well preserved and there is a good view from the edge of the town.
Note the usual contrast between a glorious view, spoiled only by electricity supplies and telephone wires, and a rather seedy patch of rubbish, typical of the less visible edge of towns all over the world I suppose
