LYNNE WILLIAMS    Book Number: 81691    Product format: Paperback

Built in the 11th century, the magnificent Warwick Castle guards the town and rises above the River Avon. We are invited to wander from our armchairs along the charming Mill Street with its Tudor buildings which escaped the fire of 1694 and is a quiet and timeless backwater. At the foot of the street is a superb view of the castle, dominated by the magnificent Caesar's Tower built between 1330 and 1360. A magical garden lies hidden behind one of its cottages created by Arthur Measures in 1951 where you can now pose in the old stocks. The medieval architecture continues at the quaint Oken's House which serves as a museum to one of the finest collections of dolls in the country. The history continues up the High Street, to the Warwick Arms Hotel, along Jury Street, St John's, Market Place, Swan Street where one curiosity on one of the timber framed buildings is three carved heads, one of which is called Old Tom. The before and after pictures, sepia and a modern colour photograph on the opposite page takes us all around the town to contrast old and new and how gracefully the town has aged and retained many of its most curious features. 96 page large softback, colour photos.
