Sudeley Castle was established prior to 1066 and is recorded in the Domesday Book. It dates from the 10th century, but the inhabited portion is chiefly Elizabethan.
The chapel, St. Mary’s Sudeley, is the burial place of Queen Catherine Parr (c. 1512–1548), the sixth wife of King Henry VIII, and contains her marble tomb.
There is a melancholy figure who is said to haunt the castle. This figure is described as a tall woman wearing a green Tudor styled dress. The Lady in Green who looks out of a window and walks through the Queen’s garden is thought to be the ghost of Catherine Parr .

    Hello again Rinky. I showed your images of Sudeley to my wife and she said she could remember the Castle and our visit (in 1976 or so) primarily because she wanted to see the display of Embroidery Samplers. I wonder if they are still there.?
    (During my extensive business travels I took my wife to see great embroidery centres all around the world)

  • HI John, I am not sure about the samplers as I didnt make it inside the house on this visit, but as the Castle is only 5miles from home I can pop over again & find out!
