AMBERLY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!

It's said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl called Emily who committed suicide at the castle.

The Haunting of the Ruins of St Andrew’s Church
You’ll find the ruins of St Andrew’s Church situated above Church Ope Cove on the east side of the Isle of Portland in the county of Dorset.
The church is a Grade II* listed building and a Scheduled Monument.
It’s believed that St Andrew’s was built on the site on an earlier Saxon church.
The Benedictine Monks of St Swithin of Winchester first built St Andrew’s on the foundations of the Saxon church in 1100.
St Andrew’s was abandoned and partly demolished in the mid-18th century due to a massive landslip which made the church too dangerous to worship in.
Today, the church ruins are reputed to be haunted.
People walking near to the ruins have reported hearing ghostly chanting coming from the remains of the church.
When they go to investigate, they find the site empty!
