Philip Davies: July 1943 – August 2010

Mr Philip Davies, passed away in August 2010 due to the effects of Motor Neurone Disease which he had been diagnosed with during the previous year.

Phil had devoted his time and energy to researching the Charterhouse and working for its return to Fishguard and Goodwick.  Phil created this blog and the CharterhouseReturns.com website to detail the history of the boat and to act as a record of its return.  He thoroughly enjoyed this activity and fortunately lived to proudly see the Charterhouse return ‘home’ to  Fishguard harbour.

Working with like-minded members of Fishguard and Goodwick, a committee was formed to bring the Charterhouse home and to ensure its restoration.  The committee continue their hard work on the restoration project: keep track of this over at www.CharterhouseReturns.co.uk (please support them if you can with your time or sponsorship!).

CharterhouseReturns.com, and this blog, shall remain online  as a record of the Charterhouse, its history and its eventual return to Fishguard and Goodwick.
