The Charterhouse of St Anne, founded in 1381, is a Grade 1 listed building
of National and International importance. Situated within half a mile of
Coventry's City Centre, it is surrounded by green space: an urban oasis.
Present buildings include the remains of the original priory and 15th Century
extensions in sandstone. The cluster of buildings includes the Prior's Lodging,
and a coach house. Inside the building there are 15th and 16th century wall paintings
including some important early Renaissance motifs and the only remaining carthusian wall painting in the UK.
Now owned and managed by the Historic Coventry Trust
with the aim of restoring and preserving one of Coventry's most important heritage sites.
The Association expects to support them in this.
