From the Archives: Bolsover

The main reason I went to Bolsover was to visit the castle. I had an English Heritage membership that year and so took the opportunity to visit as many of their properties as possible. Although, like most castles in England, Bolsover Castle is a ruin, most of the ruins actually date from the seventeenth century, and not the mediaeval period.. The photograph depicts the 'Little Castle' the only part of the castle that isn't a ruin. It's lavishly decorated inside with themes of an adult nature.



I also walked across the valley to visit Scarsdale Hall, a ruined, or maybe just roofless, stately home.
