Back in time: exploring Kenilworth Castle

We are still exploring the sights nearby to Coventry, and I often forget that Kenilworth is so close. So, one Sunday we decided to head over to the castle for a bit of exploring – and we came away as English heritage members, there will be more exploring in the future.

While I took quite a bit of time getting photographs of the full castle buildings, but actually I find the details just as interesting. Clearly wind erosion has done its work here. IMG_9816

Also when visiting historical monuments I like to look for the graffiti which is often  monument of history itself

It may mostly be a ruin, but there have been a series of stairways and viewing platforms installed which provide for some great views. IMG_9798
