Bolsover Castle

Bolsover Castle, Derbyshire, England – Another historic site I used to manage.

Formerly a medieval fortress built by the Peverel family. The wealthy Sir Charles Cavendish – who already owned several other great mansions, including one only a few miles away – bought the old fortress in 1612 and began work on his Little Castle project. It is open to the public and managed by English Heritage
