Kenilworth is pretty much equidistant between Coventry, Leamington and Warwick.


Coventry was still being re-built from the blitz when I was there (1960s). The city centre was new and very modern at the time. I hear it looks pretty tacky now.

I see.


It is always interesting to hear the different flavours of English you hear here in York. You almost don't have to see someones appearance to know where they are from.
