Ghost Hunts at Warwick Castle - Friday 21st September 2012
You only have to look at this historic monument to see the potential of this magnificent Castle. Warwick Castle was originally built in 1068 by William the Conqueror and then gradually rebuilt in stone. Thomas de Beauchamp added a huge gatehouse barbican in his attempts to build up the defences of the Castle in the late 14th Century. He also added the two enormous towers that dominate the Warwick skyline to this day. This Castle has a wealth of history and for those of you who wish to get to grips with this we suggest that you visit the Warwick Castle Website. This will ensure that you are given a full historical overview of the period activity here.
There are many recorded ghost sightings at Warwick Castle but none more so than the ghost of Sir Fulke Greville. He was murdered by his manservant in 1628. It is thought that his ghost appears from his portrait and his footsteps plus apparitions of him have been heard and seen walking around his study within the tower walls. The tower is now aptly named the ghost tower.
The dungeon is a terrifying place even by day. By night it takes on an even more sinister aspect to it. On an earlier investigation here, the spirit of a black dog was picked up in the dungeon and many guests all heard the sound of growling and saw a set of red eyes darting all over the floor area.
Whilst in the Barbican we had a clear bolt of light which came from ceiling to floor during a vigil. This was terrifying in its intensity, however, at the same time one of our guests heard a noise coming from the Oubliette which sounded like a high pitched scream.
Many people have witnessed ghostly activity at Warwick Castle but what is very compelling is that many people have witnessed the same sorts of activity. This has included ghostly footsteps pacing the corridors, lights have been seen in abundance and the ghosts of what can only be described as servants going about their duties have been seen on a regular basis by many.
The intense activity here at Warwick Castle could have so much to do with the fact that the Castle itself is built on a Ley line stretching from Clopton Hill to Herefordshire. This Ley line is famous for its concentration of hauntings but none more so than at Warwick Castle where the ghosts and spirits are firmly in abundance.

We had a fab time at Warwick last night. It went beyond our expectations of how a ghost hunt should be, without taking into account the varied activity experienced. We would not hesitate to recommend Haunted Happenings to anyone wishing to attend a paranormal event.
