Bodelwyddan Castle - Haunted History
Bodelwyddan Castle dates back to at least 1460 and has had a varied and interesting past. It was used as a hospital during the First World War, as a private girls' school and is now home to the National Portrait Gallery.
The paranormal activity ranges from the sound of phantom children heard playing in empty rooms. Visitors have reported the sensation of have their hair or clothes pulled as if by a mischievous child.
There's also reports of visitors seeing disembodied legs wearing a pair of black shoes walking through the entrance hall before vanishing.
The castle's most well known spook is the spirit of a blue lady who's been seen wearing a flowing blue dress wandering around the castle's sculpture gallery. Another female spirit is said to haunt this part of the castle, a woman seen wearing Victorian style clothing. Unusually she's said to appear as a two-dimensional image in a sepia tone. The ghost of a First World Was soldier has been seen in another of the castle's galleries.
The cellar is also said to be haunted by a spook nicknames The Cellar Man. He's said to lurk in the castle's huge basement and is said to be very physical and violent having been blamed for pinching and pulling the hair of those who are brave enough to venture into the cellar.
