Bolton Castle

Bolton Castle is located near Redmire in Wensleydale, Yorkshire DaleNational Park, built between 1378 and 1399 by Richard le Scrope, the 1st baron Scrope of Bolton, and is a fine exemple of a quadrangular castle. The most famous and notable event to have taken place in the castle's history is the stay of Mary Stewart, Queen of Scots, in 1568-1569 after her defeat at the battle of Langside and subsequent abdication in Scotland. The castle was besieged by parliamentary forces between 1644-1645 during the English Civil War and then slighted in 1647 with much of it pulled down.
