Hey Lori, when you stay at Charleville Castle in May, can you take plenty of pictures for me? I like this castle a lot, and am trying to do a model of it. If you have the time/capabilities you can e-mail pics to me at yeahrightagain@hotmail.com

Ludlow Castle (Shropshire) is supposed to be haunted by a betrayed lover (Marion La Bruyere). The castle also has a phantom, reputed to be a soldier who tried to break in to the castle.

You can't actually stay in the castle, but there's plenty of wonderful historic buildings in the town and surrounding area. I dare some of these might be haunted. In Ludlow churchyard, the phantom of a tall elderly woman with grey hair shuffles among the tombstones dressed in a long drab-coloured robe. She has also been seen near the rectory. Edward Dobson, another Ludlow ghost appears in Market Street, one of the older parts of Ludlow, and also haunts the Glove Inn where a grisly murder occurred long ago.

If that's not enough reason to go to Ludlow, one of my favourite Castles is nearby, "Stokesay Castle" which is an evocative fortified manor house. http://www.castlewales.com/stokesay.html

Ludlow also has some STUNNING restaurants - Ludlow has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other town outside London.

Just checked, "The Globe" public house on Market Street is reputed to be haunted - also does B&B.

As far as I know, "The Feathers" is not haunted, but wonderful a wonderful building none-the-less: http://www.feathersatludlow.co.uk/main.html

jtherlow...so you have an interest in Charleville Forest Castle also? That's terrific. I do plan to take lots of pictures of the castle..I a very intrigued by it. Unfortunately I don't have the capability to send the pics myself, but it is possibe that I could have someone else scan the pictures and then I could send them to you but my trip isn't until May 2004. You may not wish to wait that long. I wouldn't even mind mailing you copies of the pics. I'm thrilled that someone else has an interest in this castle as well. My email is gillespie@phc.igs.net if you wish to ask me any other questions.
