The Castles and Tower Houses of Northumberland

Mike Salter

One of Mike Salter's fine county gazetteers, although the histories and descriptions can come from elderly sources. This is a fairly comprehensive guide to the castles and tower houses of Northumberland, with a moderate listing of Bastle houses. The detail on individual sites is good, although many minor sites are just listed. The book is well illustrated and the plan and diagrams are very good.
120 pages and 210 illustrations.
338 sites.
