Although the ruins of some Essex castles
- Hadleigh, Walden - are visible, and a few are in use - Colchester,
Hedingham, Stansted - none is in its original use and so are
classified as lost castles, together with ten others - Ongar,
Stansted Mountfitchet, Great Canfield, Pleshey, Clavering,
Rayleigh, Great Easton, Rickling, Mount Bures, Elmdon, Stebbing.
The history of each castle, with stories of the people who
built it or subsequently lived in it, is dramatically retold,
with the historical background against which it was built.
