Castle, a mock 15th century castle was built in the 18th century
by one of the Merrick family for the love of a Spanish girl
who would not live in "wet and draughty old England".
It didn't work - he still died a bachelor. A ghost is said to
haunt the front lawn, though it didn't appear when I took these
photographs. Bollitree Castle is privately owned and not generally
open to visitors, but it is still interesting to view from the
road and has the occasional open day.
