Trees tell the tale
Trees tell the tale
The coming of the railway to Kenilworth in Victorian times saw an influx of industrialists from Birmingham and elsewhere, who created large mansions and mini country estates on the edges of the town. Few are left as the value of the land for building plots in the 20th century outweighed any preservation considerations and often all that's left are the specimen trees planted by the original owners, as in this pic. These trees are on the approximate site of Moorlands, a mansion long since demolished for housing.
