History And Haunting
A castle steeped in history of myths, legends, death and war. There are numerous accounts of paranormal activity and ghostly sightings which makes Whittington Castle one location we love to investigate.
There are reports of a dark hooded figure who stands under the main gateway, the ghost of a blacksmith is seen walking the ruins as well as accounts of the faces of ghostly children who are regularly seen looking out of the upstairs windows. There are areas of this castle which even the staff refuse to enter in the day light. Will you be brave enough to spend time alone in these areas in the dead of night?
The castle has changed appearance many times over the centuries since it was built. One of these changes being the 16th century Elizabethan dwelling attached to the northern outer bailey gate tower. The tower keep was built in the 12th century, however was later modified. The outer gatehouse was built by Sir Fulk Fitzwarine in the early 13th century and his coat of arms can be seen above the archway.
During the civil war the castle was loyal to the Royalists until Oliver Cromwell’s Roundheads took the castle by force in 1643 at the time of Queen Mary II. Ownership of the castle was granted to Fitz-Alan, Earl of Arundel. Later the castle was sold to Francis William Albany Esq. A London Merchant who’s manor and estate was Fernhill.
There are countless reports of footsteps, banging and tapping noises, children’s sounds, books moving and people being touched or pulled.
