Summary
Built in the twelfth century as a Norman stronghold, Leeds Castle once housed kings and queens. It lay in disrepair for nearly a century until Anthony Russell's grandmother, Lady Baillie, restored the fortress to its former glory. Here, surrounded by a moat and sprawling grounds, Anthony spent his childhood. It was life of beauty and privilege, but for a shy boy often lonely. And, as Anthony reveals in his extraordinarily vivid and frank memoir, it was perhaps not the best preparation for modern life beyond the castle's walls
