Notes NOTES: The London Charterhouse, originally a Carthusian monastery and later a Tudor mansion, hospital and school, was severely bomb damaged on 10-11 May 1941 during a heavy air raid on the City during World War II. It was restored by Seely & Paget in the 1950s and some medieval and sixteenth century fabric remains.
