THE MASTER’S lodge at Bolsover Castle is to be opened to visitors for the first time.
The lodge was built into the thick castle walls and will go on show to the public until March.
Keith Holland, from Bolsover Castle, said: “The Master’s Lodge is certainly quite grand with two rooms, and ornate fireplaces. There are a further two lodges either side of the main gate, again with impressive fireplaces.
“Who used them and for what purpose is a mystery.”
The could also have been used for entertaining or by the local militia to store their munitions.
