Ghostfinder Annual Conference 2014 - Page 2
GAC 2014 - ST BRIAVELS CASTLE, GLOUCESTERSHIRE
The sudden feeling of light headedness and strangulation has been reported in this room. As well as strange unexplained rustling noises and overbearing putrid smells that come as fast as they go. The door has been known to violently swing open of its own accord, and beds have been seen to vibrate.
Castle Keep Area
Another ghost that is often witnessed is that of a person in a full suit of armour, in the area that where the castle’s keep once stood. The true to life apparition is often seen, armour shining in the light of the moon, before suddenly disappearing in the blink of an eye.
Strange sounds such as marbles dropping, humming, and scuttling noises are often heard in this room. The appearance of a dark mass figure-like shape has also been witnessed standing in the doorway, and people have reported being violently pushed.
The state apartment is one of the oldest remaining parts of the castle. It has since been split up into individual areas, including Isobel’s room and a long corridor. Footsteps at the side of the beds in this room are a frequent report from guests, as well as the sound of a curtain closing in the room, even though they are already closed. The sound of footsteps are also heard on the corridor outside the room, as well as the sound of scratching coming from the door and the walls. There has also been loud bangs on the walls reported too.
People believe that the spirit behind these noises is that of a young girl that has been seen at the end of the corridor, dressed in white. One guest has witnessed this girl walk through a wall. A dark shadowy entity has also been seen to walk across the state apartment, as well as the sound of violins being heard, and the sound of disembodied voices seemingly arguing.
Apparently there is another area called the Solar Room where the sound of a crying baby is often heard, and during renovations to the ceiling of this room, the wrapped up corpse of a baby fell from the rafters, leading many to believe it’s this baby that can be heard so often. GPS were unable to locate the exact whereabouts of this room.
