Book published by Folly Publications in 2000, 88 pages. Paperback (N5604)

This book provides a fascinating account of the castles of Herefordshire and Worcestershire, and is illustrated throughout with lots of small black and white photographs, as well as drawings, maps and floor plans.

From the rear side cover: This book is a comprehensive guide to the history and architecture of castellated buildings dating from the mid 11th century to the late 15th century in the counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Following separate introductions describing the historical background, and the development of fortified buildings in each county, are gazetteers illustrated with many plans and photographs. The book includes major stone castles, moated or embattled manor houses and town defences, plus many earthwork sites, some of which only ever had timber buildings and palisades, although evidence is emerging that more of these sites were fortified in stone than was previously recognised.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is an old price printed and a small price sticker on the rear side cover, and the left and right hand edges of the book curve very gently upwards from where the book has been stored flat on the shelves.
