Undated Mound at Abbey Fields
The site of an undated mound which is still visible as an earthwork. It has been suggested that it might be a windmill mound although there are no records of a mill standing at this site. The mound is located 300m east of the Kenilworth Castle.
1 On a plan of Kenilworth Castle and its environs by the Reverend E H Knowles, 1872, a bank is shown on the S side of the Finham Brook, which extends along almost the entire length of Abbey Pool. The mound appears to be the sole remaining portion. 1951: Dimensions – 20m E-W, 14m N-S, height 2m.
3 More than anything the mound resembles that for a windmill, but there is no record of a windmill here. Part of the N side of the mound has been eroded by the stream.
