Bolsover - Star Chamber

 

The Star Chamber was the main chamber of the "little castle", built between 1610 and 1617.  It gets its name from the gilded lead stars in the ceiling.

I imagine it could be a bit smoky in here when we light a fire to dry our socks, Tom.
Tom Wilson: I'm sure they kept the chimneys well cleaned by shoving little boys up them, Ray smile
It does look like a beautiful ceiling... I like the way they made attempts to "warm" the place up!
Tom Wilson: It felt like a very cosy room!

Love that ceiling, and the red benches certainly do add a suggestion of warmth to the place
Tom Wilson: I guess they managed to keep the room pretty warm - the windows have shutters, so the cold would be kept out in the winter.

This looks quite cosy Tom.
Tom Wilson: Very much so - and quite modest for the nobility!
It is a wonderful room Tom
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Bill - was it like this on your visit? English Heritage have done a lot of work on it in recent years.
Wonderful decorations...
Tom Wilson: Very fine, isn't it?
It is a really nice room, your series is tempting me and Maureen to venture that way next year.
Tom Wilson: Worth a visit, Brian - and not too far from you - about an hour, I'd think??
superbe chambre!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre.
