Be prepared to be a part of the story telling......

Loading...

Going the scenic route up the side of the castle hill......

You come to a stop at the top of the Dog and Duck Lane area to be told of a bloody Suicide after murder....all I can say about the character in question is that he at least looked happy across his throat....

As dusk comes upon us you stroll upto the castle walls.....

Beneath the arch which frames the north bay you are told of the Death(Execution/murder) of King Edward II's lover Piers Gareston seen by Mr Gary Potts and a group of Ghost walkers during July 2000.......

This is where he fell......

A last look as the sun starts to set......

At the front Gate House of the Castle you are informed that Charles Fox, founder of the Quaker movement was imprisoned in the castle by King James II.....

Fox wrote to the king saying he had to pay for his cell roof to be mended, pay for wood for his fire and that soldiers put wevels in his bread and did unspeakable things in his drinking water........

then past the side of the ruins of the original St Mary's destroyed during the civil war....

.....and down to the front entrance steps of St Mary's church....

At this time of night the church seems to take on a spooky atmos of trepidation....

Loading...

Now beneath the church and at the top of the old town Church Stairs Street Gary tells you many a chilling tale......

Loading...

Your fellow walker's imaginations are working overtime and the evening light is failing.....

Loading...

A young lady is brought forward to take the part of a tale being told....

Loading...

The light suddenly diminishes and the Street light illuminates proceedings intime for us to be told that the church steps are haunted by Jane Nicholson a witch and alledged vampire........use the steps after dark at your own risk !
