This is pleasant tourist guide to the castles of Shropshire, many of which survive only as mounds in the landscape. Nicely illustrated, with some good B/W and colour photos and a few plans. The histories of the sites are mainly derived from the Victoria County History of Shropshire, now a hundred years old, but remain of interest. Of limited interest to the historian or serious student of castle studies but would fit into the pocket of a good wax cotton jacket or car glove box and reward the rambler.
Describes 140 castle sites in Shropshire and Bishop's Moat in Wales.

Received this book this lunch time. Checked on the locations of some castles near me. Input the OS ref for Shrawardine Castle SJ 401 184 on Memery Map only to find that it referred to a location aprox 1.88 miles North of the actual location of the castle. A bit careless of the author of an otherwise useful and interesting little book. Hopefully that will be the only in-accuracy I'll come across.

Very pleased considering it was a used book.
