magnificent castle in the heart of West Sussex has been the home for the Dukes
of Norfolk since the Norman Conquest. It was severely damaged by fire in the
but has now been restored to its former glory. Not only is it home to many
priceless works of art but it also houses several ghosts.
ghost of a young woman dressed in white has been seen wandering round Hiorne's
Tower, particularly on moonlit nights. According to legend, she threw herself
off the tower because of a tragic love affair.
ghost has also been encountered in the library and has become known as the
'Blue Man'. He has been seen on several occasions searching through books and
is thought to date back to the time of King Charles II.
fourth ghost is that of a small white bird which reputedly flutters around the
windows of the castle. It is said to signify the imminent death of someone
connected to the castle.
