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 Hauntings of Lowes Mill
In Thaxted there’s an old windmill which dates back to 1804.
Some call it Lowes Mill whilst others call it John Webb’s Mill after the guy who built it.
Well, you know what I’m going to say now… yep, it’s haunted!
And the good news is that it’s opened to the public as a rural museum so you can have a look around it if you wish.
The team at the windmill have a few spooky tales to tell.
They’ve heard phantom footsteps and bangs coming from the upper floors of the windmill after closing hours when the building is supposed to be empty!
Ghostly shadows have been seen by the staff and on one of the floors visitors feel they are being watched by something unearthly.
The mill’s owners are open-minded when it comes to investigations by paranormal groups.
Interestingly, past investigations have uncovered the spirits of children, phantom voices, eerie lights and bone chilling cold spots!
