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 Walton Pier
Did you know Walton-on-the-Naze has a half mile long pier called Walton Pier?
It’s true… the first pier was built in 1830 for landing passengers and goods from steamers.
In 1880 the pier was badly damaged by a severe storm.
But all was not lost…
In 1895 a replacement pier with an electric tramway was built by the Walton-on-the-Naze Hotel and Pier Company.
Today Walton Pier is still in use, it has great amusements and fun-fair rides which are very popular with visitors to the town.
It’s said that one such startled visitor whilst alone on the pier had a spooky conversation with a phantom fisherman who disappeared into thin air!
It has also been reported that the promenade to the west of Walton Pier is haunted too.
It’s been said that frightened witnesses have seen half a dozen ghostly apparitions of figures walking along the promenade…
Maybe they’re happy past visitors from a bygone age who just didn’t want to leave their beloved Walton-on-the-Naze!
