Spooky Happenings at The Castle

Margam Castle's Ghosts

Margam Castle Staircase HallIt is believed that one frequently encountered spirit is thought to be Robert Scott a gamekeeper that worked at the Castle for many years. It is thought that Scott was murdered by a poacher and his spirit still rages around the grounds today.

Robert Scott has often been seen purposefully ascending the Gothic staircase leading the Castle. His presence has come forward regularly with psychic investigators, all of whom have insisted his spirit is consumed with rage over his unjust killing.

The sound of giggling children is heard frequently through the long corridors and dramatic rooms of the family areas. There have been reports of children in Victorian dress seen drifting in and out of doorways and mischievously moving objects.

The large figure of the blacksmith is also a familiar vision to many of the gamekeepers and gardening staff today who maintain the vast castle grounds. At night the castle's security guards have reported the noise of running footsteps and chattering voices with no sign of anyone else in the building.

Paranormal activity

In recent years the high reports of paranormal activity have brought psychic investigations to this wonderfully intriguing building. Reports of cold spots and orbs in the Castle are frighteningly abundant on paranormal activity nights. It seems the Castle is flushed with psychic energy.

Rocks have been thrown at those who hold seances and endeavour to speak with the spirits. The most violent and angry spirit is certainly Robert Scott who is said to have slammed doors and hurled projectiles, and emit a foreboding presence.

Margam Castle is an impressive and dramatic site with unique architectural features.

The number of paranormal stories coming from the castle on a regular basis could make this property a contender for most haunted house in Britain. 

Ghost Hunters International visit Margam Castle

Ghost Hunters international flew in from Los Angeles, California, earlier in the year to film an episode of their popular TV show for the SyFy Channel.

It aired to the American audience on July 21 at 9:00pm and was watched by over 1 MILLION viewers, certainly putting Margam Country Park on the world map.

The show will be coming to UK screens in the future months, the exact date is yet to be confirmed.
