Notes about this historic site

1 Examination of published historical and archaeological data established that the proposed development at Eagle Lane lies within the area of Kenilworth which was part of the borough founded in the first half of the 12th century.
2 After evaluation the site was subject to salvage excavation and a limited watching brief. This recorded substantial medieval structures, mainly within the footprint of nos 60-64 Warwick Road. Substantial foundations indicated a building more than one storey high. This plot of land lies within an area where a messuage (dwelling and associated land) had stood along the frontage of Warwick Road (first recorded in 1581).
