Slightly different view here, this time from the interior of the 17th century castle. This is one of the small fireplaces in an upstairs panelled room. Many of the rooms have fireplaces, and some of them are very ornate, but this is one of the simple ones set into a corner.
A view of the ‘Little Castle’ or keep of the 17th Century Bolsover Castle. The red doors lead into the garden whereas the path to the left takes you around an under the archway (see Bolsover Castle (1) photo) which, in turn, leads you to the main entrance.
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.
