Most Haunted Chillingham Castle
Chillingham Castle located deep in the English countryside, between Newcastle and Edinburgh (Scotland), is one of the most haunted castles in the world. In the 1200s, this castle was known as the “Home of the Torturers”. The vicious torturer’s name was John Sage. He created the most painful and barbaric devices one could find. Brr, just to think about it, I would not like being in the patients shoes! His favourite was the cage, in which he would place his victims before lighting a fire beneath them. He would watch, as, bit by bit, the victim slowly cook from the feet up. You really have to be wired wrong to do such a thing! Sage's spirit still returns to Chillingham, and many say you can feel his breath on the back of your neck as you walk the cold corridors. Well it will not happen to me, because I would not visit this charming little place.
Many ghosts inhabit this little mansion and the most famous one is called ‘The Radiant boy”. No one knows his name or who he is; one just knows he had a very terrible and mysterious death. His bones are buried in a secret passage behind the wall-one will have to pay me big money just to set a foot in there!- Could he have been placed in the wall still alive? No one will ever know. But his spirit is here and haunts what is called the Pink room, people say he is emerging from the wall, a weird light surrounding him, his face has no form, no eyes, no mouth- it’s going to be hard for him to see where he’s going, watch that wall! But when night comes, the silent is shattered by cries and complaints of a child in pain. The bones are now interred at a local churchyard.
But this little boy is not the only resident of Chillingham castle. A famous ghost is Lady Mary Berkeley, the wife of Lord Grey of Wark and Chillingham. She spends her nights wandering in the corridors of the castle – well, she’s probably bored- She is looking for her husband who ran away with her own sister- now, this is not cool, traitor- Lady Mary was then left all alone in the castle with her infant child, and heartbroken. Visitors who came to visit Chillingham castle have often heard the rustle of an old fashioned dress or a chill as if the ghost of Lady Mary has walked by. This beautiful castle, though the story of many deaths, tortures and misfortunes, has since the 13th century be owned by the same family, the Earls Grey- tea owner- and their relatives. The castle has been restored many times and is now open to the public.
