For this episode, we were at Clitheroe Castle in Lancashire. We captured a few strange things.
Article below is credited to Presidgeparanormal. Thank You.
The Castle Keep - Built in 1186 by Robert de Lacy, The Norman keep of Clitheroe Castle is said to be the second smallest keep in England. The keep was damaged after its capture by Parliamentary forces during the civil war, but was repaired in 1848 with the smooth limestone blocks now clearly visible. There is a legend that the Devil threw a boulder from Pendle Hill and hit the castle creating the hole you can see today.
It's not just what is inside the museum that tells a story, the building itself is part of the long and fascinating history of the castle.
This was the Steward's House and parts of the building date from at least 1720. It was built as accommodation for the Steward and his household. During the 1700's it was used as a prison and courthouse.
The Steward was the official who looked after the manor or Honor Of Clitheroe's business all the legal and financial affairs to do with the castle and its wider property. The Steward's House, like the castle keep and the surrounding parkland came into public ownership as part of Clitheroe's war memorial after the First World War.
So when you walk through the museum you are exploring part of the early history of the region that goes right back to the origins of the castle after William the Conqueror.
In 1612 a law was passed which forbid any act of "making a covenant with an evil spirit, hurting life or limb, injuring live stock by means of charms or procuring love". All acts were subject to the death penalty. By order of James I. During the Pendle which trials Margaret Pearson was pilloried at Clitheroe Castle, head and hands locked in a wooden framework on a post to be exposed to public scorn as punishment. She was also pilloried at Padiham, Whalley and Lancaster, followed by a year of imprisonment at Lancaster Castle.
Ghosts of a man a woman and a child have been seen and have been thought to have all come from the same family.
The ghost of a young servant girl and a man in uniform also have been reported here. Light anomalies have been captured and loud moans and audibles have been heard. And of course the obvious pendle hill witches especially Margeret. A shadowy figure has also been seen from the window and including a white lady.
Clitheroe castle is very close to Pendle Hill, famous for the Pendle Hill Witches, Its history dates back to William the Conqueror and the Norman
conquest. With an impressive back drop of Pendle Hill, just the drive there is enough to scare most people. With Pendle hill in the distance and the infamous witches that have been known to have murdered 17 people in the 1600's, it comes to no surprise that this area is full of activity and history and emotions.
