Kenilworth Castle



Quick sketch of Kenilworth Castle -from the Great Mere ( see Wikipedia photo).

I’ve only drawn the castle from outside the walls, because I’m too tight to pay for admission tickets.

Described by architectural historian Anthony Emery as “the finest surviving…semi-royal palace of the later middle ages”- there still isn’t too much left. Surviving the greatest siege in English history, it was destroyed in the Civil War several hundred years later. Highly recommend the Queen and Castle pub opposite!
