Sir Charles Oman’s Castles


A beautifully produced history and guide to eighty of England’s and Wales’s finest castles – including Windsor, Warwick and Kenilworth – in the western regions served by the Great Western Railway. Its author is the great historian Sir Charles Oman, and the commission is clearly a labour of love, with his learned but accessibly prose complemented by 105 illustrations, including fine photographs and line drawings along with maps and plans. A book to treasure.
