A Castle in England

By Jamie Rhodes
Illustrated by Various

A collaboration between writer Jamie Rhodes and the National Trust, this unique graphic novel plunges us into the rich and often dark history of Scotney Castle in Kent.

Recreating the castle’s past from the Medieval to the Edwardian ages, five rising stars from the UK comics scene (Isaac Lenkiewicz, Briony May Smith, William Exley, Becky Palmer and Isabel Greenberg) have illustrated five short stories that mix fiction with fact, creating a visually striking graphic collection that is steeped in historical context.

  • Supported by the Arts Council England and the National Trust.
  • Rhodes spent three months as Writer in Residence at Scotney Castle, working with the castle archivists to find unusual material around which to create five short graphic fiction scripts.
  • Illustrated by five exciting artists from the UK comics scene, some well-known and others up-and-coming talented newcomers.
