Yorkshire, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 30, 2011 -- As seen on Most Haunted! Come and join Tvs' Livings popular Medium Chris Conway at this amazing castle in the centre of Newcastle. With the amount of history that's taken place within castle keeps walls, you'd expect a fair few ghost stories here. although the Ghosts of Castle Keep are not well documented. This is one reason why our team are so excited to be hosting an investigation here as it should be very interesting to see what we pick up.
It is known that there have been many sightings and apparitions have been seen on many occasions by visitors. There has also been poltergeist activity here where things have been thrown around the room and small objects such as coins have been thrown at guests during the day.
Eerie voices and ghostly footsteps have been heard echoing through the corridors. Tapping and scratching on the walls has been heard frequently. The laughter of children has been heard in the corridors and the sobbing of a woman has been heard in an area which is thought to have been the drawing room. The clinking of armour has also been heard as has the movement of chains.
One of the ghost stories was reported quite recently from a man who was visiting. He was ascending a flight of stone stairs near the mezzanine chamber, when he physically bumped into someone on the stairs. Turning back to apologize, he realized no one was there... as you can imagine he left the building immediately!
The great hall has such an atmosphere, many people have claimed to have seen a teenage girl in pre-Victorian probably Edwardian - style of dress moving quickly around the room. Also, in the Galleries that overlook the Great Hall, eye-witnessed have seen a woman in her mid-twenties, with Elizabethan dress and even heard the rustling of her gown.
It's often reported that the Mezzanine Chamber is the most terrifying room in the building. People complain of oppressive nausea and ghostly whispers. The Mezzanine Chamber was in fact a holding cell for people to be taken away an executed, so it's hardly surprising that this phenomena is reported, given the amount of emotional torment that's taken place within the room.
Lets hope Newcastle Keep lives up to its newly found reputation as being very haunted, for visit on the 15th October 2011.
