|The Original Chapel Door of 1666|
On view was the original door to Charterhouse Chapel, which saved the building from destruction in the Great Fire of London in 1666.
The fire burned for four days and nights and by the time it was extinguished had claimed 80% of the city.

Burial place of the ashes of Sir Henry Wood, where we viewed the gruesome bell which was tolled the night before executions were scheduled to take place.
