Message on back:
Norman Castle built between 1153-1189 of Caen(?) stone brought from Normandy during the reign of King Henry II who was responsible for the murder of Thomas A’Beckett 1170.
All bedchambers, chapel & anti rooms are in the walls which are from 16′ to 21′ in width.
Even had water laid in every room, sanitation, and heating throughout when built. Wonderful fortress, never without a garrison of soldiers, who have even(?) living quarters attached.
