Some interesting but very long winded stuff about the History & the Castle but for me it was negative view of Bolsover, it repeats how Chesterfield was so much more sucessful which I feel misses the point.

With a little investment TLC & good marketing "Bowsa" could be recognised as the beautiful little place it is.

What about the origin of the name ?
What about the main route to London & the rich history of buckle making which is only touched on ? Time Team should pay a visit !!
What about the Sutton Estate?
What about the monestry at Carr Vale ?
What about the railway & the Viaduct at Carr Vale?
What about the Bolsover Colliery Band who won many awards & played at the Albert Hall?
The book covers mining but there is nothing about the people who migrated to the area to mine & nothing positive written about the rich culture & community. As for illustrations ,I have better pictures than the book includes.

I also think Dennis Skinner should have had a chapter, he knows about the heart of the place & people.

Dissappointing book. Bolsover is a lovely little place with lovely friendly funny people & huge potential, the book misses the point completely.
