This Exclusive venue Bolton Castle is just a great place to investigate. Dating back to 1378 by Richard, 1st baron Scrope of Bolton and is an example of a quadrangluar castle. In 1536 John, 8th Baron Scrope supported the pilgrimage of grace rebellion against religious reforms of King Henry VIII and gave Adam Sedbar, Abbot of Jervaulx sanctuary in the castle. In consequence John Scrope had to flee to Skipton pursued by king’s men but Abbot Sedbar was caught and executed. In retribution the king ordered Bolton castle to be torched.
Mary, Queen of Scots stayed at Bolton for six months after her defeat in Scotland at the battle of Langside in 1568 she fled to England posing a threat to the position of the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I. Mary was initially held at Carlisle Castle under the watch of Henry, 9th Baron Scrope, but Carlisle proved unsuitable and in July 1568 Mary was moved to Bolton castle.
