The Harry Sunley Memorial Project is a registered charity aiming to open the Gatehouse of Kenilworth Abbey to the public and to use it to display artefacts from the Abbey ruins.  We are engaged in fundraising to cover the significant costs. For further details of the project see our explanatory paper. -- From Joanna Illingworth, Chair of the Trustees, Harry Sunley Memorial Project (j.m.i@btinternet.com)
