Bolsover Castle

Discussion in 'Gallery' started by HolyGround, Aug 19, 2016.

  1. This is where I live: not in the Castle but the area. :D
    The Castle shown on the image below is a 2 minutes walk from my house - its at the top of our street.

    Have you been inside the castle? And it looks cold in the scenery lol.

  3. I have been inside the Castle twice - there's not much there as its pretty much a ruin now, however there are events hosted there frequently.
    The photograph isn't mine but I like the winter shot - it is high up so it can be chilly. ;)

  4. That's awesome. We don't have castles here so it's kind of a rare thing for us.

    Funny thing, it's Winter here :p

  5. I see - we have a few historic attractions near us. We have Bolsover Castle, Sutton Hall, Hardwick Hall, Chatsworth House and more.
    Chatsworth House is beautiful! :love:
    The weather here today is like Winter. :LOL:

  7. Wow :) pretty neat. It's abit like the palace/mansion where The Sound of Music movie was filmed lol.

    I bet those historic places have different meanings/stories behind them?

  9. There is - some of the stories are inspirational; some are a tale of greed and war.
    There is plenty on information online if that interests you. :)
    Our county, Derbyshire has a lot of history which I love.

  11. So you're from GB?

    Yes, I like reading up on History especially from the Bible :) but I've always thought that some castles (not all) hold that stigma of evil doings associated to them. Just my thinking and no offence ;)

  12. Ahhh. I'm live in New Zealand - not sure if you've heard of us? We're a small Nation off the Pacific Ocean.
     
  13. No offence taken, I know what you mean.
    History is one of my favorite interests - I like old things. :p
    I am from GB. :)

  14. Of course I know New Zealand, who doesn't? :D
    I'm sure many don't - I have never been; is it nice?

  16. You'd be surprised of how many people I've come across who don't know NZ even exists lol.

    NZ is beautiful. Greenery, mountains, hills, the ocean. Unfortunately where I live, we don't get snow as often as the South Island of NZ :(

  20. I (these days a very infrequent visitor) had a nice chat about your country with someone who used to post in a thread here once. Having been a follower of some ball games, I can name a few cricketers of whom I'd guess Richard Hadlee remains the best known and say I remember watching (on tv) Jonoh Lumu play rugby over here. That side is probably easy for some of us UKers... While I had seen wonderful pictures of the islands and have met a few people from your country, I didn't know for example of your lovely song Pokarekare Ana...

    Beware of Bolsover btw. Rumour has it there is a beast there...
