Looking up into the Lantern at Bolsover Castle, the sun streams through and casts coloured light through the small panes of stained glass. This bright central room is high in the Little Castle and links a number of chambers on this top floor.

BOLSOVER CASTLE (1)

DSCF4747

This archway lies inside the grounds of Bolsover Castle, an impressive early 17th century castle built over the site of an earlier mediaeval fortress. The castle dominates the skyline as you approach the small town of Bolsover, and would undoubtedly have been more impressive during its heyday when it was owned by the Cavendish family.
