Cambridgeshire Ghost Nights/ Ghost Hunting Events
Wisbech Castle Ghost Hunts Paranormal Eye UK
Join us in an exciting ghost hunt within the walls of a historic haunted castle in Cambridgeshire, dating back to 1087. Many long-lost spirits are said to reside in this daunting castle, which has been the site of numerous ghost sightings and stories. Other buildings, including a Norman Castle, once stood on this site. During previous ghost-hunting events, guests have reported extreme cold temperatures and disembodied voices emanating from deep underground in the vaults. Male solid energy is said to haunt the location, and strange lavender smells have been reported from the lower floor and underground passages. Our ghost hunt will take you back in time as we investigate the lower floor areas, including the terrifying vaults and underground passages. Be prepared to enter the darkness on this ghost hunt. This castle is known as the Castle of Nightmares for a reason. Who will we encounter this ghostly evening? A location where you will have to keep your nerve on this ghost night.
History Of Wisbech Castle
After 1066, William the Conqueror established the mark of his authority in every important place, and the town of Wisbech, at that time on the sea, was deemed worthy of a stone fortress.
In 1236, both Town and Castle have swept away in a terrible inundation. The castle remained in ruins for the better half of a century, and then was rebuilt and became one of ten castles, palaces and manor houses attached to the See of Ely.
In the times of persecution, Wisbech Castle became a state ecclesiastical prison, incarcerating Catholics in the reigns of Elizabeth, James I and Charles I and Protestants in that of Queen Mary. Many were executed. It is possible even that the Gunpowder Plot was hatched at the Castle.
Since Wisbech was a Cromwellian area, the Castle, by now in a state of terminal dilapidation, was sold in 1658 to the Right Honourable John Thurloe, Cromwell’s Secretary of State. He had the ruined castle demolished and replaced it with a most elegant house designed by Peter Mills, a pupil of Inigo Jones.
At the Restoration, Thurloe’s Mansion reverted to the See of Ely and was occupied by members of the Southwell family over a period of a hundred and-five years.
Then in 1792 it was put up for sale, and purchased by Joseph Medworth, a former Wisbech Charity boy who had succeeded in business. He offered it for sale to the Corporation for the use of the Grammar School, but they declined. Medworth had the Mansion demolished. Using much of the same materials, he managed to replace it with the regency villa, which stands today.
Until February 2018 the building was managed by Cambridgeshire County Council. The building had declined and there was a real chance it would be sold into private hands and lost to the people of Wisbech.
