The Hauntings at the Nutshell
The Nutshell on the corner of the Traverse is one of the smallest pubs in England.
The building dates back to the 1800s and it has a few ghostly tales to tell…
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!
The upstairs is said to be haunted by a little boy who’s been witnessed sitting on his tod in the room.
Local legend says the little boy died in the premises in mysterious circumstances.
A lot of the poltergeist activity which happens within the building is blamed on this poor little boy!
A phantom monk is also said to haunt the building and members of staff have often smelt the smell of an old fashion perfume within the pub after it has been closed to the public.

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!
