GeoWeek: Kenilworth Rocks! Meet ‘The Stones’ – Thursday 9 May 2pm
May 9, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
A guided walk of “The Building Stones of Old Kenilworth” (approx 1½ hours)
Thursday 9th May, Meet 2 pm, Abbey Fields Car Park, Bridge Street. Kenilworth CV8 1BQ
Led by Ian Fenwick, Parking: 2 hrs free with ticket.
- Kenilworth’s stone is 280 million years old.
- How did it get here?
- Where was Warwickshire then?
- Every building has secrets to share and stories to tell.
- Even the gravestones are alive with stories
We shall take a walk along the Old High Street, looking in on the church and the Abbey ruins. Hopefully, we shall find out how Warwickshire has moved around the world, how large rivers once flowed across Kenilworth and perhaps how the village once echoed to the noise of masons’ hammers.
The tour is offered free by the Warwickshire Geological Conservation Group (WGCG) as part of GeoWeek, a national initiative to introduce members of the public to geoscience.
