MPBW Guide to Dover Castle

Dover Castle

(1967)

I have noted a series of MPBW guide books that departed from the ‘traditional’ blue guide format (see Deal and Walmer Castles). A later addition to the series was R. Allen Brown’s 1967 guide to Dover Castle (price 2 s). The opening paragraph sets the tone: ‘Few if any fortified sites in England are more impressive than Dover Castle, and few even in Wales, the land of castles’.

R. Allen Brown also wrote a number of ‘blue guides’ including Orford Castle (1964), Rochester Castle (1969), and Castle Rising (1978).
