The Haunting of the Old Vicarage
At the former vicarage in Southwold many eerie sounds have been reported…
Spooky sighs, creaking chairs and chains rattling have all been heard!
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!
These eerie sounds are blamed on a ghost of a woman who has been seen sitting on the bed of scared witnesses who she’s woken in the middle of the night.
One ghostly trick she’s said to perform is to create the sound of someone falling down the vicarage’s stairs.
When witnesses investigate the commotion expecting someone to be in a heap at the bottom of the stairs… nobody is there!

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!
