Ghost Hunts

HISTORY

Dudley Castle was built in 1070 and rebuilt in the 12th and 13th centuries. 

The castle is now Grade I listed and partially ruined. On 24th July 1750, a fire broke out in the castle and raged through for three days, destroying much of it. Sadly, it was never restored. The castle experienced sieges between 1153-1173, and again in 1644 and 1646. Countless deaths would have occurred on the grounds during these times. 

One famous tale centres around the death of a witch, who is said to have lived in the keep with her cat around the 1400s. There are two versions of the legend. The first is that a group of youths broke into the keep and found the witch about to fly off to the sabbath, a midnight meeting of witches. They hung the witch and her cat from the battlements. The second story says that the old lady was tried and found guilty of witchcraft. She was pushed from the top of the keep to her death, and her cat was thrown after her. 

 

HAUNTINGS

The witch of the keep and her cat are not the only spirits believed to haunt the castle. They are joined by a monk, a drummer boy said to have been killed in the Civil War, an executioner, the Lady in White and a group of hooded figures.

Full bodied apparitions are seen around the castle and one even made its way to fame when caught on camera. It is believed to be Dorothy Beaumont, the castle’s Woman in White.

The sound of drumming is heard in the grounds, a cat is heard meowing by the keep and moaning is heard. Doors open and close on their own. Disembodied conversations and footsteps are often heard. 

Will you encounter the Woman in White, the hooded figures or perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to bump into the executioner?
