This year we are commemorating the 900th Anniversary of the initial founding of Kenilworth Priory as described in Canon John Strecche’s 15thC Chronicle.
Members of KHAS will be hosting free guided walks of the Priory/Abbey ruins on the following dates:
Sunday 28th July and Saturday and Sunday 14th and 15th September 2019.
Take a walk back in time to when Kenilworth St. Mary’s Priory, later Abbey, was one of the most prestigious Augustinian houses in the Midlands. Hear about the people who lived there and what happened to them and their once beautiful buildings.
The walks will begin outside the Abbey ‘Barn’ Museum & Heritage Centre on Abbey Fields, Kenilworth, at 3pm and last for approximately one hour. Places are limited so please register at the Museum Reception (which will be open from 2.30pm) on the day. The Museum itself is open every Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday afternoon from 2.30 to 4.30 pm until late September.
