This term’s Heritage Pathway trip will be to the Charterhouse in Coventry. Commonly associated with the post- World War II rebuilding and the ‘‘concrete collar’’ of the ring road encircling it, Coventry’s rich medieval heritage is often overlooked. Among the City’s medieval gems is the Charterhouse, a fourteenth-century building and the only former Carthusian monastery in the country with in-situ interiors.

Following a multi-million-pound restoration effort over several years, the Charterhouse and its surrounding parkland have recently reopened as a unique visitor attraction, offering everything from historic tours to silent discos! During our visit, we will hear about the history and the future of the Charterhouse from staff at the Historic Coventry Trust, the organisational body responsible for managing the site. We will also have an opportunity to critically evaluate the Charterhouse’s learning offer and fundraising activities through bespoke workshops with the team.

Places are strictly limited and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. We will be travelling by coach which will pick us up at 8.45am outside the Radcliffe Humanities Building. We are expecting to be back in Oxford at 4.45pm, subject to traffic conditions. 

**Please note, this course requires a £20 deposit which will be refunded once you have attended the course, or have cancelled your place at least 72 hours before the course start date. Please see our full Terms and Conditions for more information.
