"This book is the result of two most interesting, if rather laborious, journeys, devoted to castle-seeking, on in 1924, covering Wales and the English counties along the Welsh border; the other in 1925, devoted to Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. I was accompanied throughout by my son and his camera, to which about the illustrations, large and small, in the volume are due.
