The Hauntings of Fornham Park
The old entrance to Fornham Park near the roundabout just north of the village of Fornham St Genevieve is said to be haunted by Red Hannah.
Local legend says that this ghostly lady would suddenly appear to the naughty children of the local village scaring them half to death!
LUMLEY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The ghost of Lady Lily Lumley is said to haunt the castle.
Phantom children are often heard playing on the top floor.
And a ghostly apparition of a man has been seen sitting at the bar.
It’s said that a ghost known as Black Jack often plays pranks on startled guests!
Her favourite time and location to appear to the poor children was just after dusk and right next to the park gates.
Red Hannah isn’t the only spectre to haunt the area near the roundabout.
One late evening in 1946, two local men were walking towards this area when they heard the sound of a motorbike roaring along the road and crashing nearby.
Concerned about the rider, they rushed to the spot where they thought the motorbike had crashed only to find no evidence what so ever of any crash or motorbike!
They were later shocked to discover that a young motorcyclist had been tragically killed when his motorbike had crashed at the very same spot a year earlier.

FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: Amberley Castle
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
The castle started life out as a timber-framed hunting lodge in 1103.
But it upgraded to a fortified manor house in 1377 by the bishop of Chichester.
After the Reformation the castle still belonged to the church but was leased out to the crown.
During the English Civil War part of the castle was destroyed by Parliamentarian forces and it fell into ruin.
The Duke of Norfolk leased Amberley Castle in 1893 and started to renovate it.
Today the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
The castle is 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!
