Join Ghostlygathering to investigate these two amazingly haunted places. Wisbech Castle was originally a fort where numerous bloody battles took place and to date the land has been inhabited for thousands of years. In 1072, William 1st gave orders for a castle to be built in place of the fort, and since then, the castle, which later became a bishop’s palace, has been constantly inhabited.
There have been reported sightings of Joseph Medworth, who owned the castle in 1811, in the role of Town Bailiff. Staff and guests have reported many ghostly experiences – including seeing people walk by in empty corridors, feelings of oppression and fear, and cold touches from unseen hands. Ghostly children have been seen and heard playing in the house and garden.
The vaults are the original castle dungeons and there are many accounts of torture and death happening in the dark caverns. During the Reformation, the dungeons became a notorious ecclesiastical prison, where Catholic noble families, priests and nuns were imprisoned and many died there.
During the reign of Queen Mary, the prison held many Protestant people. The times were brutal and bloody, leaving their mark on the vaults.
People have reported hearing prayers on EVP monitors, of being pushed and shoved, and strange anomalies have been caught on cameras and camcorders.
