Possible Site of Priory Mill, Kenilworth
The possible site of Kenilworth Priory watermill, for which there is documentary evidence from the Medieval period. The site was in the area of the Swimming Pool at Abbey Fields.
2 The Abbey (or rather Priory) had two mills which were valued at 6s 8d in 1291.
3 The site of one of these is marked on the OS 6″ map of 1886, though it is thought to have been demolished many years previously. Kenilworth Mill (PRN 3206) probably stood on the site of the second mill owned by the Priory.
4 ‘Priory Mill (site of)’ marked on 1886 OS map and subsequent ones also. This location is at the apex of the site of Abbey Pool (PRN 3223) and seems plausible enough. No sign of the mill remains today however.
5 The site is within the Scheduled area of the SAM of Kenilworth Abbey (Monument Number 35115).
