The castles and churches books contain numerous black and white photographs and many plans reproduced to a set of common scales to allow comparisons of buildings of similar types (e.g. all churches, keeps, tower houses, gatehouses, etc. at 1:400, and courtyard castles mostly at 1:800, earthworks and large sites at 1:2000). The more recent digital titles about morris dancing, nunneries, bridges, walled towns and Saxon churches have many colour photographs. In Medieval Castles of Wales, Medieval Castles of France, and Medieval Castles of England all of the pictures are in colour.

Customers outside of the UK please contact Mike before placing an order. The site is currently unable to charge realistic rates for shipping abroad.
