The Fletchers at Charterhouse 2018

On Tuesday 18 September 2018, 25 Fletchers had a guided visit to the London Charterhouse, an appropriate choice since it was founded as a Carthusian monastery in 1371, the year to which the Company traces its own independent origins. We were inspired by the peacefulness of the Charterhouse today as an almshouse and intrigued to hear about its founder of 1611, Thomas Sutton, one of the richest men of his day, and about the many famous people with links to the site. The visit was rounded off with a delicious lunch nearby and characteristically lively Fletcher conversations.
