A Spot of History

Just a little alert for those who like castles and history: I was recently invited to do a post for a Museum site. I chose to do a post about Bolton Castle in North Yorkshire. You’ll find that post here, if you’re interested.

    1. They did their best for her, but landowners, like everyone else at the time, never knew who might be in power in the future, so they felt it best to hedge their bets!

    1. Thanks, Diane(?) I see you originate in Australia. Our daughter’s fiance is also an Australian and was fascinated by our castles when he visited the UK with her a couple of years ago. Glad you enjoyed the post.

    1. Thanks, Sue. Friends who live in Yorkshire have made similar comments about the past. Our short talk with the staff in the kitchen preparing for a private event suggested some substantial work had been done a short time prior to our visit (they must’ve heard we were coming, otherwise, what possible reason could they have had?). So it’s probably worth another visit once the restrictions are eased.

            1. Mine, too, Sue. I was born in Hull and we lived for a time in Settle. They say the Yorkshire Dales is the finest walking country in Europe and I wouldn’t argue with that.
