National Story Telling Week
We have now completed a Historic Buildings Record of the site. The plot of land containing the site of Old Bolsover Yard has most likely supported a building facing onto Castle Street from the late medieval/early post-medieval period as alluded to by historic mapping dating from the 17th century. The basement underneath the north western half of No.2 Castle Street, thought to have been the butcher’s shop, contains some substantial remains of salting slabs and other storage features.
We're starting to put together a picture of the people who have lived and worked at 2 Castle Street and are working with a small project team to write up The Story of Old Bolsover Yard. Throughout National Storytelling week we will be sharing some of the details from both the report and our research across our social media channels. Keep a look out for our Story Writing challenge too so you can get involved.
