Introduction

Jack Price 10PMA How accurate is the guidebook information about Kenilworth Castle? The guidebook has a lot of information that is also in the source booklet that we have had provided, I am also going to use the knowledge of my visit to Kenilworth and some other books to get a wide variety of information.
