Medeival Warwick

By Kwosimodo
Lord Leycester Hospital

The historic group of buildings that now comprise the Hospital, is now dominated by the ancient Chantry Chapel of St James, built over the West Gate into Warwick by Thomas Beauchamp, 12th Earl of Warwick, in the latter half of the 14th Century.
In 1571, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leycester acquired the buildings and founded, under charter from Queen Elizabeth I, a Hospital for aged or disabled soldiers and their wives.

It's a fantastic piece of architecture, acually the whole of Warwick is fantastic in my eyes! Shame about the burnt out bit of the sky but it's a good angle and capture of the building - did you get anymore?

Know this place well as I was born and bred in Warwick and Leamington. Nicely taken shot. Pity about the burnout in the sky though.

Beautiful building, nice tones throughout, except for that sky.

Look forward to seeing the other ones.
