I was going to leave this for a little while until the regulars on this site were perhaps a bit more wiser to me, but I thought what the hell, if
you've got something to tell then you might as well tell it.
This could turn out to be a bit of a story but I'll try to keep it as short and as simple as I possibly can.
In the summer of 96, making me 11 years old, I spent a week in a popular little holiday resort called Saundersfoot, which is located in South Wales.
On a hot summer's day me and the rest of the family visited a nearby castle, Carew Castle, which is surrounding by countryside. One of the features of
the castle is that there is also a Mill on the other side of the lake, and we decided to walk there first before entering the castle itself.
A little more than half way around the lake we stopped at what was a piece of wall if I remember correctly, just to have a drink and take some
pictures, mostly of the castle which really is quite picturesque. My Grandad, who was carrying binoculars, noticed a lady dressed in white overlooking
the lake in one of the castle's towers. Nothing at all strange about that at the time, and he simply commented that it would be a great place to take
some pictures of the surrounding area as it was obviously high up. I also looked and saw this lady with my very own eyes, but as at the time nothing
was at all strange about it I didn't really focus all that much on her.
Moving on, once we visited the Mill we made our way to and inside the castle. To our complete astonishment, we found that there was only a ground
floor, and that there was simply no longer any upper level left for anybody to stand on. We were all so shaken up that we hardly spoke a word to each
other for the duration of the visit. There is no way anybody could of climbed up to the top window of one of these towers, not without a huge set of
Sometime later, perhaps a couple of years, being a bit of a ghost nut from a very young age admittedly, I bought a book detailing a lot of apparent
haunted locations, many of them being castles, all over Great Britain. In that book was a whole page about Carew Castle. It told of how there had been
many sightings over the years of different apparitions, including an Ape (no, really!), and one of them was a lady in white that had been seen mostly
in the tower. She was apparently Nester de Windsor, a 12th century Welsh princess who was well known at the time for her striking beauty and was once
apparently abducted (willingly) from Carew Castle by a knight that had fallen in love with her at first sight.
So there's my experience, and I'm sorry if it dragged on somewhat but I really did try to get straight to the point.
