Ghosts of Dudley Castle
Dudley Castle has earned itself a well-deserved reputation for being one of the most haunted locations in the U.K, some say in the world. It is certainly a place that you wont forget about in a hurry and is not for the feint hearted.
Stuart and Dean first encountered the ghosts and spirits of the castle back in 1998 when they conducted a paranormal investigation there. The face of one of the ghosts was captured on a photo during the investigation. The photo was taken when the voice of a woman was heard by several investigators in a particular location. The photo attracted much media attention from BBC TV and local radio.
Anyone who Dare enter the castle at night is captivated by its eerie atmosphere and sprawling structure. Many visitors and staff alike have reported sensing many a presence, cold spots and the feeling of being watched.
Some have felt their clothing tugged or hair ruffled by unseen hands. Dark hooded figures and shadowy spirit people have been seen walking the grounds, and discarnate groans and disembodied whispers have been heard from a bygone era.
Two of the better known ghosts who haunt the castle are the ghost of a young drummer boy who was killed with a single bullet during the civil war, who is often experienced near castle keep. Superstition holds that to see him or hear his drums foretells bad luck.
The other is “The Grey lady”. It’s believed she is the spirit of Dorothy Beaumont who lived at the castle for a time. She is said to ROAM the castle, tormented at the loss of her child and not being able to be buried next to her, with her husband in attendance.
The Castle is home to many other ghosts and spirits. Who may you get to encounter on this night ?

A brief history of Dudley Castle
The motte and bailey construction of Dudley Castle was completed in 1070 by Ansculf de Picquigny (Northern France). He was succeeded by the Paganel family during the 12th century who became Lords of Dudley.
In 1537 John Dudley – son of Edmund Dudley, economic advisor to Henry VII, who was executed by Henry VIII – embarked on a building programme at Dudley Castle including the stunning Sharington Range, named after his architect, William Sharington. The motte and bailey construction of Dudley Castle was completed in 1070 by Ansculf de Picquigny (northern France). He was succeeded by the Paganel family during the 12th century who became Lords of Dudley.
Dudley rapidly rose through royal ranks to become Duke of Northumberland, and on the death of Henry VIII in 1547 became one of 16 executors of a Regency Council founded to supervise the nine-year-old successor, King Edward VI.
In 1552 Dudley became Lord Protector, but by spring 1553 the king had contracted TB and in an attempt to control the succession he encouraged the dying Edward to void the rights of princesses Mary and Elizabeth to the throne and put his cousin, Lady Jane Grey next in line.
Mary’s Catholicism posed a threat to the recently-introduced religious reformation and the new-found wealth of those who supported it, and to boost his security Dudley arranged the marriage of his youngest son, Guilford, to Lady Jane on May 21.
King Edward VI died on July 6 and Lady Jane Grey proclaimed queen. However, the succession was challenged by Mary and her supporters who forced a coup d’etat against Dudley in the Privy Council, and he was charged with treason and executed on August 22, 1553.
His best-known son Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, was a favourite of Mary’s successor, Queen Elizabeth I.
On August 11, 1575 Queen Elizabeth I visited Dudley Castle and a decade later the site was surveyed as a possible residence for the imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots.
During the Civil War Dudley Castle was garrisoned by royalist troops. It was besieged in 1644 and 1646 and surrendered on May 13, 1646. The following year, by order of Parliament, the keep, gatehouse and sections of the curtain wall were slighted.
On July 24, 1750 a fire, which raged for three days, swept through the Sharington Range, gutting the once-magnificent palace. Dudley Castle was allowed to settle into the role of romantic ruin.
