Castles and Moated Sites of Herefordshire

Ron Shoesmith

A stunningly comprehensive guide to all the castles of Herefordshire including many a site suggested on the slightest of evidence. Every site is described and referenced, there are relatively few illustrations but these are good plans, line drawings and a couple of reconstruction drawings (That of Wigmore is good), photos are poor though.
This is an excellent gazetteer.
The 2009 revised edition is a considerably improvement in scope and content.
164 sites.
211 'castle' sites (revised edition) although 2 sites from previous edition omitted. Moated sites generally not referenced in Gatehouse.

Published by Logaston Press (1996; 2009 revised edition)
ISBN: 1 873827 59 8; 978 1906663 30 8 (revised edition)
