Chillingham Castle is a medieval castle in the village of Chillingham, in Northumberland, England.
In 1298, King Edward I stayed at the castle on his way to Scotland to battle a Scottish army led by William Wallace.
It was used as a staging post for English armies entering Scotland, but was also repeatedly attacked and besieged by Scottish armies and raiding parties heading south.
The most famous ghost of the castle is the “blue boy”. Guests supposedly reported seeing blue flashes and a blue “halo” of light above their beds after a loud wail.
It is claimed that the hauntings ceased after renovation work revealed a man and a young boy inside a 10-foot-thick wall.
Documents dating back to the Spanish Armada were also found within the wall. “PLEASE VIEW LARGE”
