Bolsover Castle

Bolsover Castle is located near Chesterfield in Derbyshire.
It was the last major house designed by Robert Smythson.
He began work at Bolsover for Sir Charles Cavendish in 1612.

The first Bolsover Castle was a stone keep with a curtain wall.
In the 1100s it had been built by William Peverel.
William was an illegitimate son of King William I of England.

In the 1500s George Talbot, 6th Earl of Shrewsbury, purchased Bolsover Castle.
George leased the castle in 1608 to his stepson, Sir Charles Cavendish.

Sir Charles Cavendish bought the edifice in 1613.
The staterooms were designed by Robert Smythson and his son John.
The staterooms included a Great Hall and a Long Gallery.
