SP2772 : Kenilworth Castle

taken 12 years ago, near to Kenilworth, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Kenilworth Castle
Kenilworth Castle
The castle is thought to have existed in the reign of King Arthur (if we believe in the semi-legendary figure), and in Saxon times, a castle stood upon a hill called Hom. The structure was probably demolished during the wars between King Edmund and Canute II King of the Danes, and rebuilt about a century later. Today it is an impressive ruin dominating the countryside just outside the town.
