Details of Haunted Place :
One of the most haunted castles in the South of England. Berry Pomeroy castle is located in a remote part of Devon near to the small village of Berry Pomeroy near Totnes. The castle was built during the 12th century on land that was given to Ralph de Pomeroy by the King of England, William the Conqueror, as a reward for his support during the Norman invasion of England.
One of the many ghosts that haunt the castle is the White Lady. She is often seen in the dungeons, and rises from St. Margaret's Tower to the castle ramparts. The White Lady is believed to be ghost of Lady Margaret Pomeroy who was imprisoned in the dungeons by her sister, Lady Eleanor.
The evil Eleanor, out of jealousy, imprisoned Margaret in the dungeons for almost twenty years - and eventually left her to starve to death.
On one visit to Berry Pomeroy Castle our ghost investigator, Miss Terry Hunter, saw the ghostly shape of the White Lady groaning in a corner of the dungeons. The whit Lady was weakly groaning, 'Food . . . food . . . please someone give me food.'
Overcoming her fear, Terry offered the apparition a scrumptious Double Cheese Burger with French Fries - but the White Lady merely groaned . . . 'I would rather suffer a painful death than eat that garbage.'
