Picture of the Week #425

St. Nicholas’ Church, Kenilworth. Photo May 2015.

Since my visit to Kenilworth in 1998 was too short, I decided when I went in 2015 that I would stay the whole day and visit not just the castle, but also the ruins of the old abbey and the parish church (both are an easy walk from the castle). Elizabeth I attended services at the church several times during her visits to Robert Dudley at Kenilworth Castle, especially during the famous 1575 stay. There are have been renovations and additions to the church since that time, but some parts date back to medieval times.
