Mr. William Edward Newton, Gatekeeper of the Charterhouse (1935)

This short article was originally printed in “Old Charterhouse Magazine” in December, 1935. It concerns a Mr William Edward Newton, who worked for the Charterhouse for over a quarter of a century, first as a gardener and storekeeper, then as a gatekeeper.

Judging by the article, Newton was admired by the Brothers, who regarded him as a happy-tempered Cerberus.
