This historic castle is situated in Purbeck in
Dorset. In the past it has been home to many kings, including King Edward the
Martyr who was actually murdered in the grounds of the castle. King John also
had a connection with the place in so far as he locked 22 Frenchmen in the
dungeons and left them to starve to death.
The ghost that has been seen around the castle,
however, has no connection with these rather unsavoury tales. A figure of a
headless woman has been seen by many witnesses and some have claimed that when
the white figure appears they also feel a sharp chill in the air.
