Bolton Castle in Castle Bolton

Bolton Castle, built in the 14th Century, found its way into the history books when Mary, Queen of Scots, was held as prisoner there. With a retinue of personal servants, guards and ladies-in-waiting, together with luxurious furnishings and tapestries,borrowed from neighbouring estates, it made for a rather luxurious prison!

Thank you for sharing this one, Carrie. How happy I am looking at some photographs that educate me, and add knowledge to me. I have never seen a real castle ever in my life so I am happy and grateful that Voice club opens this kind of event that gives me a chance to see the wonders of the world with just a single click.

Wow 🙂 I hope one day I can visit the UK to visit and see personally the real castle.

Carrie, castles remind me of spiders webs – once in, very few make it out alive.
Thanks for the touch of history, really interesting.

Castle Bolton looks incredibly grand. I have just learnt something new today! Do people still live there?

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
