Top of Abbey Hill
Just out of Kenilworth town is Abbey Fields. The white building ahead used to be the Abbey Hotel but has now been converted to flats. I seem to recall they had a disco in there sometimes, not that I would ever have gone to such a thing!
This is the entrance, off Bridge Street, to the main car park, and the avenue of trees leads up to St Nicholas Church. That is the church where my kids were christened.
A cold old day again. By the time I was going through the university I was getting cold, heading into the east wind. A nice hot chocolate would go down well at the student cafe there, that would warm my hands up. One small snag. I hadn't got my bike lock so couldn't go in! A university bike rack is not the best place to leave a decent road bike unattended. Oh well; the thought was nice.
Carried on towards the Tollgate Inn going through Allesley park.
Some would say a wasted 20 mile round trip. I would say it was a cold, but enjoyable, trip out to pastures new; and the challenge still remains.
