Sallyport Tower - Haunted History

Sallyport Tower, Newcastle

Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Tyne and Wear

Sallyport Tower was one of the main defensive fortifications forming part of Newcastle's city walls, it's now known as Carpenter's Tower. The ghost of a soldier has been seen looking out of one of the tower's windows, it's believed that he was killed whilst fighting the Scots in 1644.

One visitor to the tower reported seeing him float up from the floor before passing through the ceiling. The visitor didn't know until later that the exact location where they'd seen the ghost used to be the location of a spiral staircase.
