Notes about this historic site

1 The ‘site of’ Bakehouse Pool is marked.
2 No further reference was found even in discussions of the water system of the Castle. The date/nature/use of the pool is uncertain, but it is most likely to have been a mill pool. The area is now part of the Abbey Fields and there is no obvious sign of the former edges of the pool.
3 The site is within the Scheduled area of the SAM of Kenilworth Abbey (Monument Number 35115).
