BOLTON, A PRISON OF MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS: LUMLEY CASTLE

BOLTON, A PRISON OF MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS: LUMLEY CASTLE

The Scropes of Bolton, the great Yorkshire family, had their seat at Bolton Castle (bottom), a rather well preserved ruin dominating, after the manner of Corfe, the little village of Castle Bolton. This is the most effectively placed castle in the county, and it was built about 1379 Mary Queen of Scots was a captive here for six months, and this may have been one of her rooms. Lumley Castle (top) is in Durham, about a mile and a half from Chester-le-Street, and dates from the late fourteenth century.
