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 Haunting of the Holy Trinity Church
Along Church Street in Maidstone you’ll find an impressive looking Victorian church which was once the Holy Trinity Church.
The Holy Trinity was declared redundant in the late 1960s with the building being converted into office accommodation called Trinity Foyer.
The churchyard was partially cleared and turned into Trinity Park.
In the 1970s a young woman was walking her dog through the disused churchyard when she suddenly saw the apparitions of three young women dressed in Victorian clothing floating across the churchyard.
They headed towards the edge of the churchyard where they disappeared into thin air.
The young woman headed to the spot where the Victorian women disappeared and found a large flat memorial stone in the ground.
The inscription on the stone told the sad story of a Victorian vicar whose three daughters had all died in the same week of scarlet fever!
Apparently the ghostly Victorian women make an appearance every year in the month of July.
