St Kenelm's church at Romsley stands on the northern slopes of the Clent Hills and is built on the site of the alleged murder Kenelm, a king of Mercia in the early ninth century. The capital of the kingdom of Mercia was Winchcombe on the edge of the Cotswolds and a 60 miles long distance path called St Kenelm's Way link these two places.

'Now, take St Kenelm's life which I've been reading;
He was Kenulph's son, the nobel king
Of Mercia. Now St Kenelm dreamt a thing
Shortly before they murdered him one day.
He saw his murder in a dream, I say...'
- Chaucer, The Nun's Priest's Tale
