A Seriously Haunted Medieval Castle

A popular section on our Medieval Castles website is the one about haunted castles. Let's face it, a castle built in the medieval period will have seen centuries of human activity - from births to marriages and deaths plus a whole host of things in between. Such a degree of human existence must leave a mark of some kind which perhaps explains why ghosts or so called 'paranormal phenomenon' have been witnessed and reported in and around medieval castles.

One of the most intriguing and exciting accounts of a haunted castle has to be one about haunted Carlisle Castle in England which we recently published on our website. Contributed by a member of the public, the writer requested anonymity for fear they would receive comments of ridicule from those seeking to discredit 'paranormal' activity. We have respected their request because we believe their story is genuine and wanted to share it with the large number of people out there who are interested in reading 'ghost stories'. Whether you believe it or not is up to you but it makes for some of the most fascinating reading about a English medieval castle. If nothing else, it may just encourage you to visit Carlisle Castle and see for yourself - with over 900 years of often turbulent history to its name, the atmosphere alone has to be worth the trip!
