Bolton Castle, England

28 April 2011

I  was thrilled to discover that Bolton Castle was located very close to our camp site. We were too late to explore the castle but we were able to wonder around the beautiful grounds. In 1568 Mary Queen of Scots stayed at Bolton Castle as a "guest" at the request of Queen Elizabeth I. Bess of Hardwick and her husband, The Earl of Shrewsbury, were Mary's hosts.

Bolton Castle was used as a location in the filming of Elizabeth and All Creatures Great And Small. It is easy to picture James Herriot driving down a winding country road to tend to his patients. Yorkshire really is the paradise he described in his books.
