The Castles in the English Civil War: Cheshire Region
This booklet tells the story of the English Civil War in the Cheshire Region, including North Wales, related to the Castles used as garrisons. While they were essentially considered as outmoded by the development of the cannon there is clear evidence, they proved much more resilient in practice. This was probably as many of the siege trains contained too few cannons of too small a size to breach earth walls never mind stone ramparts. While castles were numerous in the area in the Norman period only a few survived until the seventeenth century and even fewer played a role in the English Civil War.
