Although these buildings provide a very good defence you must keep the turret maker and the ballista towers deep inside your castle. Both of these have a relatively low defence and cannot withstand much damage.

Turrets are a very important line of defence for your castle. Just like the keep, they fire automatically without the need for them to be manned by archers. Turrets should be places between the keep and the outside wall so they fire as quickly as possible when the battle starts while also being protected from fire. Because you can place 10, which is a large number of them, you can protect all the sides of your castle with them.
Turrets can only be built in a village when a turret maker is placed in the parish capital. Each level the turret maker is upgraded allows access to one more turret.

Ballista turrets fire automatically, just like regular turrets. They fire large bolts which kill enemy units in 1 hit. They are the primary defence against catapults and will always target catapults first. Because you can place a large number of these you can defend fairly easy against large armies of catapults.
Ballista makers can only be built in a village when a ballista maker is placed in the parish capital. Each level the ballista maker is upgraded allows access to one more ballista tower.

The tunnel allows a group of armed peasants emerges from your tunnel during a battle. Only one tunnel can be placed so choose wisely where you place it. An idea is to place it at the very back of the battlefield in a position where when your peasants emerge they will emerge right behind enemy catapults and will destroy them very quickly. It has to be placed outside the white line around your castle.
Tunnels can only be built when a tunnel maker is places in the parish capital. The higher the level of the tunnel maker in the parish capital, the more peasants that will emerge from the tunnel.
