History Of Newcastle Keep
The Castle's Keep in Newcastle is a historic building that is over 800 years old. Built on the site of the earlier castle, it is a Grade I listed building and a Scheduled Ancient Monument. From the 16th to the 18th century, the Keep was used as a prison but fell into disrepair before it was restored in the early 19th century. The arrival of the railway system in the 1850s demanded that the surrounding area be altered, and today, the Keep and Gatehouse are the only surviving buildings from the original fortification.
The entrance to the Castle's Keep is via flights of stairs, leading to the second floor and the Great Hall- the largest room in the Keep. The Black Gate, which was once approached via a drawbridge across a moat, can now be accessed via a wooden bridge. The original gate had a portcullis, and the recesses where this fit can still be seen. The Castle's Keep and the Black Gate have recently been refurbished and reopened as Newcastle Castle, thanks to the Heart of the City Partnership's efforts to improve accessibility.
If you're feeling brave, you can take part in a ghost hunt at the Castle after dark. During the evening, you will be put into small groups to explore and investigate the King's Chamber, Great Hall, Queen's Chamber, ground-level Chapel, chamber, and dungeon. Will you experience any of the unexplained happenings that occur here? Can you face your fears as you enter this chilling Castle after dark?
