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 Colchester Military Hospital
Colchester Military Hospital was once in the grounds of Colchester Barracks.
A twenty hut hospital was first built on the site in 1856.
But it was then replaced by a splendid red brick hospital in 1896 which could treat up to 220 patients.
Unfortunately the Military Hospital was closed in 1977.
Sadly the building has now been totally demolished!
During the Second World War the hospital started to get a reputation for being haunted by a Victorian nurse.
Her ghostly apparition was often witnessed gliding down one of the hospital’s corridor only to vanish into thin air when she reached the end.
On one occasion, one of the wounded patients at the hospital swears that she actually helped to change his dirty bandages!
