Tiny Castles Summary


Tiny Castles by Dixe Wills

Praised by BBC Countryfile Magazine for writing `intelligently and amusingly, with evident excitement and imagination', Dixe Wills unleashes his trademark style on the tiniest castles in Britain. Beautifully presented in full colour throughout, the book uncovers over 60 of the country's loveliest and most compelling castles. No crumbling ruins are included here - only only relatively complete castles with enough features intact to explore and enjoy are listed, although all are delightfully diminutive. From Henry VIII's beautifully preserved St Mawes Castle in Cornwall to Scalloway Castle in Shetland, where it is said the blood and hair of the cruel Earl Patrick's tenants were used in the mortar, many of these tiny fortresses occupy a unique place in history. Each entry features information on how to get there using public transport, when best to visit the attraction, a concise round-up of its history and any must-see features.
