Artist's Description

Featured in Castle Magic, January 2010.

Chillingham’s ghosts

“Its current owners market the castle as being the most haunted castle in Britain. It has been investigated on television and radio (namely, Most Haunted, I’m Famous and Frightened!, Scariest Places On Earth, Holiday Showdown, Alan Robson’s Nightowls) and now Ghost Hunters International.

The most famous ghost of the castle is the “blue (or radiant) boy”, who according to the owners used to haunt the Pink Room in the castle. 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 the bodies of a man and a young boy bricked inside a 10-foot-thick wall. The owners also claim that the ghosts of John Sage, a former torturer, and of Lady Mary Berkeley haunt the castle. Guests have reported hearing screams for help and doors slamming mysteriously."

I really feel that this image captures the intended spooky atmosphere of Chillingham Castle. What lurks beyond? Mwah ha ha :o
