English Castles

An Englishman's home is his castle', says the old proverb - and in the past, a castle provides security and expressed status. Travel around England through the pages of this book, and visit a wide selection of castles around the country. These iconic symbols from the past of power, domination and wealth form some of the most evocative landmarks of the English landscape, brooding over the surrounding towns and countryside as historic and romantic vestiges of our heritage. This fascinating book illustrated with archive photographs from The Francis Frith Collection shows a wide selection of English castles as they were recorded on glass plate and film in past times, some of them showing individual castles long before they underwent modern restoration. The accompanying text recounts the general history of castle-building through England's turbulent history, as well as stories and information about each castle depicted in this book, often with fascinating insights into the lives of the people who lived in it. 'English Castles' will provide hours of enjoyable and informative reading.
