Bolsover

Bolsover Castle, perched high on a wooded hillside near Chesterfield, is an enchanting place to visit. William the Conqueror gave Bolsover Castle to his bailiff, William Peveril, who is believed to have built a keep where Bolsover Castle now stands. The castle was first leased to Sir Charles Cavendish, Bess of Hardwicks' son, in 1608, and five years later he became the owner. Employing Robert Smythson as his architect, Cavendish set about re-building the castle. The tower, known today as the little castle, was completed c1621, and building work continued with their sons adding the terrace and riding school ranges.
