Charterhouse

Though the best known martyrdom of the reign of Henry VIII is that of St Thomas More, it was far less notable at the time than that of Bishop Fisher of Ropchester and, above all, the fate of the monks of the London Charterhouse. Their moving story forms an important part of the plot of LONDON's 'Hampton Court'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first Armistice Day observances, which included a two minute silence, were held in London at Buckingham Palace on the eleventh day of November 1919, exactly a year after the last day of World War I. That same day, in America, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation commemorating the day as Armistice Day. In Britain, Canada and many other places, this date is now called Remembrance Day; in the US Veterans Day.
