Surprise View
Surprise View
This is a view west from a footpath in Bolsover. Near the castle is a alley called "Surprise View". Down some steps and a path leads down to New Bolsover.It was begun in the early 20th century, by the Bolsover Mining Company, the term "model village" refers to the fact that this was a planned village, built in a philanthropic attitude, to benefit and better the lives of workers/labourers, in this case those of the Bolsover Colliery.
In the far distance, but out of sight,is Chesterfield, and in the dip behind the trees is the M1.
