Through The Arch

Looking down through the arch, to a private garden built over 400 years ago by Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester for Queen Elizabeth 1st at Kenilworth Castle, who visit the garden in 1575. The creation was intended to seduce visitors, every detail reflected his position as a prominent courtier and ambitious Royal favourite. At the centre of the garden is the fountain, two Atheism gods joined together with their hands upholding a fair- formed bowl which is made out of hard white marble.DSC_0345-Small02JPeg
