Dudley Castle Ghost Hunts
Dudley Castle in the west midlands was originally built around 1071 when William the Conqueror was creating a ring of Castles around Staffordshire, Salop, Cheshire and North Wales. Its a classic example of a motte and bailey Castle (the motte being the mound on which the keep stands and the bailey being the flat area within the curtain wall).
The keep was rebuilt again in the 13th Century and this is the Castle keep you see today in ruins, which was square with a round tower on each corner.
During the middle of the 16th Century the living areas were rebuilt as a Renaissance Palace (The Sharrington Range), by John Dudley, Lord of Dudley and Duke of Northumberland, the
most famous Earl/Lord at the Castle. He was later beheaded by the order of Queen Mary I for hatching the ill-fated plot to put Lady Jane Grey on the throne.
During the Civil War the Castle was a Royalist stronghold but surrendered in 1646 after a Parliamentary siege. This was when the keep and the gate house were sleighted or pulled down, so the Castle could not be used as a fortification any longer.
The most well known ghost of Dudley Castle is that of the Grey Lady who is regularly seen walking the grounds of the castle, the grey lady is often seen by staff and visitors. There has also been an apparition of a little boy who is believed to be a drummer boy from from the civil war, many have also reported hearing the sound of drumming coming from within the castle grounds. The undercroft is also known for its spooky goings on and and many people reporting being touched and grabbed by unseen hands.
