Ghosts of Conisbrough Castle

Conisbrough Castle is located in South Yorkshire, England. Hamelin Plantagenet built the stone keep in approximately 1180 on an earlier wooden castle site.

Conisbrough Castle


Curtain walls were built around the keep in the early 1200s. The keep, one of the finest in England, survived destruction during the English Civil War. Conisbrough Castle did not play a significant role in history other than an occasional siege through the years.

Nonetheless, the castle currently serves as home to a few ghostly residents ...

The ghost of a gray monk has been seen wandering among the ruined curtain walls. There is also the ghost of the "White Lady," who has been seen at the top of the keep, where she was presumably pushed over the edge to her death. Unknown footsteps have also been heard in the keep. In addition, strange lights have been reported from the chapel area of the castle.
