Discovery of medieval remains 'will inevitably delay' swimming pool works in Kenilworth
Work to build new swimming pools in place of the former facility at Abbey Fields in Kenilworth ‘will inevitably be delayed’ after the discovery of medieval remains at the site.
The remains are foundations and walls from previous monastic buildings.
A spokesman for Warwick District Council, which is leading the building project, said that the purpose of these buildings is not yet known but that some stone surfaces are similar to small cobble areas that may have acted as service yards.
They added: “The changes to the design of the foundations in order to preserve the medieval remains will inevitably delay the works.
"A report will be presented to councillors as soon as these details are agreed.”
