The Castles of East Anglia


This book is a comprehensive guide to the history and architecture of over a hundred castellated buildings dating from the mid 11th century to the mid 16th century in the counties of Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.

The book includes castles of stone and brick, motte and bailey castles which only ever had earth and timber defences, moated or embattled manor houses, tower houses, town defences and coastal blockhouses and artillery forts.
