Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

About 2 miles away from Bolton Castle

Couldn't help but think of the Dreadfort when we were there :)  You can see the Castle in the distance if you view this large.  It is imposing and impressive over the valley.  

There was a film crew just finishing up filming when we were there - for Horrible Histories and because the Castle was awash with props and sets (they were fantastic) I could not take many photos.

Bolton Castle is very foreboding.  Part of it is in ruins, while some rooms are still complete dating nearly all the way back to the middle ages.  Because of the film set, we could not just wander about ourselves and had to go on a tour.  The young chap we got was very funny and cheeky - but I answered some of the questions that people asked on the tour that he did not know.  But it was all in good fun and was a great hour spent.
