Bolsover is dominated by a 17th century castle which peers down as if it were created for a fairy tale. Built by Sir Charles Cavendish on the site of a previous, medieval castle, it was badly damaged during the Civil War. The town borders both the Peak District and Sherwood Forest and nearby you will find Hardwick Hall and Stainsby Mill.
