Bolsover Castle is a castle in Bolsover, Derbyshire, England which we visited with the Wilson's. It was founded in the 12th century by the Peverel family, who also owned Peveril Castle in Derbyshire, and came under royal control in 1155. This site was free to us because we joined English Heritage a month or so back. The parts of Bolsover Castle that remain reasonably intact show its history to be less of a military stronghold and more of a fantasy castle for throwing lavish parties in the 17th Century. The people from this era really liked to party.

This is about the only kind of horse I can ride right now.
The Riding House withing the courtyard of Bolsover Castle speaks less of war and more of rich men indulging in hobbies to impress their peers.
I love the fog and look of this English valley.
Yes it rained the whole day

This use to be a dining room.

Can you hear him saying to me "Hurry up and stop taking pictures." He hates looking like a tourist.

It was fun to see this chapel set up for a wedding later this rainy day.
I loved the ceiling and decor.

I love this tree because it is so old and big. It truly was amazing.
