Wisbech Castle Ghost Hunting Events and ghost tours

Wisbech Castle Ghost Hunt 

Cambridgeshire Ghost Nights/ Ghost Hunting Events 

Wisbech Castle Ghost Hunts Paranormal Eye UK 

Join the team as we open the doors of the historic haunted castle dating back to 1087. Be part of this ghost hunt located in Cambridgeshire. This daunting castle is said to be home to many long-lost spirits; it’s no wonder there are many ghost sightings and stories associated here. It is also known that other buildings, including a Norman Castle, once stood on this site. Previous ghost-hunting events at the castle have left many guests refusing to return to vaults. It is said that strong male energy haunts this location. Drastic icy cold temperatures have been reported, along with disembodied voices coming from deep below the ground in the vaults. Your ghost hunt at this haunted castle will take you back in time as we will investigate the areas on the lower floor along with the terrifying vaults and the deep underground passages underground; there have been many reports of strange lavender smells coming from within this area. Be prepared to enter the darkness on this ghost hunt; It is no wonder this castle is known as the Castle of Nightmares. Who will we encounter this ghostly evening?

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.
