Bolsover Castle




Andy has relatives who live just around the corner from Bolsover Castle, so we've now been there a couple of times. It's a beautiful place to wander around on a spring afternoon. On this occasion the castle's own car park was full, so we only had a short-stay space at the side of the road outside, which meant we had to do a whistle-stop tour.

As well as some of the spectacular ruins that I mentioned previously, there's also a well-preserved section with some impressive surviving interiors. Can you imagine having rooms of sufficient stature to get away with this kind of gilded wood panelling?

I can't imagine living in such a castle. Stunning Rachel. How their lives must have been, cold and drafty I expect but ever so beautiful.

The wooden panelling is astonishing, isn't it.
Wood would be warmer than stone, I guess...
