The Coventry Charterhouse Association
The Coventry Charterhouse Association was set up by the Charterhouse Area Local Residents to support the Trust in fullfilling the bequest of Colonel Wyley, who left the Charterhouse Estate for the use of the people of Coventry. We determined that the aims of the Trust were the same as those of the Association, and that they would need to show that there was local and city wide support to help in financing their plans. We were, and remain, independant of the Trust but are able to work very closely with them. The Association has been able to gain some funding of its own and provide furniture, signage, and blackout for the windows overlooking the valuable wall paintings. We manage Open Days and run events to promote the Charterhouse Priory of St Anne.
