Dudley Castle has the reputation of being one of the most haunted venues in the west Midlands.
Dudley Castle was built in 1071 by the Normans, originally built as a wooden castle and then by the 13th Century the Castle was rebuilt from stone.
Dudley Castle has history steeped to the brim with the castle being occupied by Queen Elizabeth in 1575 and even being considered as a prison for Mary Queen of Scots.
The Castle continued to be lived in by the Earl’s of Dudley until 1750 but a terrible fire which continued for 3 days destroyed the castle and the castle sadly became a ruin as it still remains to the present day.
There are said to be a plethora of resident ghosts haunting the castle the scariest being the ominous black monk who has been seen in various parts of the castle by visitors and staff alike on numerous occasions. Another ghost said to haunt the castle is the grey lady who is said to wander aimlessly throughout the castle and its grounds.
Poltergeist Activity happens on a frequent basis at this eerie location along with strange noises being heard, ghostly figures and shadows being witnessed.
