AMBERLY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
Today, the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
It's said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl called Emily who committed suicide at the castle.
Her ghostly apparition has been seen by terrified witnesses in and around the Herstmonceux Room!
The Haunting of the A35 Lay-by
Just by the Plain on the A35 you’ll find a large lay-by which has a public toilet and a café situated in it.
This part of the A35 is said to be haunted by a phantom motorcyclist.
Witnesses who’ve stopped in the lay-by late at night to use the facilities have reported hearing him roar pass on his motorcycle.
One evening an off duty policeman saw a motorcyclist standing in the lay-by as he drove pass but the motorcyclist didn’t have his bike with him.
Concerned that he’d come off it, the off-duty policeman turned around to see if he’d needed any help.
As he entered the lay-by, the motorcyclist had totally disappeared!
The policeman described the phantom motorcyclist as wearing black leathers and a dull blue helmet.
