Ghost Sighting ‘IF’ Berry Pomeroy is the most haunted castle?

Mysterious white figures Deafening screeches
and shaking hinges, ruined buildings appearing as new all stories from Castle found in south
west England. This location is known as one of the most
haunted places in the country and maybe the world. In this video we take a look at Berry Pomeroy
Castle. Welcome to If videos on the paranormal and
other strange events Videos posted twice a week hit that subscribe
and ring that bell so you never miss a video again. Nestled in the quiet countryside of the English
county of Devon are the ruins of a grand stately home and castle. The ruined walls of this ancient feudal barony
hold many secrets lost to history. These secrets may have been given some proof
by recent pictures snapped at the old stately home. This castle is old enough to be found listed
in the doomesday book which was written in 1086 as record used to determine what taxes
had been owed during the reign of King Edward the Confessor. The Seymour family called Berry Pomeroy home
– Edward Seymour purchasing the castle from the Pomeroy family in 1547. The Seymour’s had a significant influence
on the politics of Tudor England and Jane Seymour was the third wife of Henry VIII and
the mother of his son, who later become King Edward the VI. As you can imagine a place with such history,
has become a hub for the supernatural. People have reported seeing many an apparition
and hearing odd noises when visiting what has now become a tourist attraction in the
region. Witnesses have seen what is known as ‘the
Ghostly Guard’ This restless spirit is said to patrol the
ramparts as well as watching people from the broken out windows of the ruins. It has also been said that the guard likes
to follow castle visitors, those that have encountered the ghostly guard saying that
they could hear his footsteps behind them. When they turn to see who is following they
see nothing! This guard maybe a harmless spirit who merely
follows people but for the next specter it is said not to be the case. Stick around for the most recent sighting
featuring photos and video recently captured its coming a little later in the video. The white lady is considered an omen of death,
something quite unique to this ghost is the range she is said to appear in. Not only can she be seen within the castle
walls she also stalks the surrounding land. Those that have reported an interaction with
the white lady often falling victim to accidents or illness. Speculation on the specter tells of the Lady
Margaret Pomeroy. This beautiful young woman was locked in the
tower by her jealous sister. Here she languished until death. Her fate slow and agonizing as she starved,
now she wishes to reap her revenge on the unsuspecting visitors of Berry Pomeroy. Another tragic tale which leads us to our
next ghost, is the women in blue. This spirit wonders the castle and is accompanied
by a feeling of loss and sadness, the history of this tragic ghost is that she is said to
have been a servant of the house whom fell pregnant with a child sired by her own father. The father smothered the baby and hid the
body from his daughter. Now, she searches her former home in the vain
hope of finding her murdered child. These are just a few of the many ghosts that
inhabit Berry Pomeroy. There are also some more unusual happenings
in the idyllic Devon countryside in which the castle sits. The castle itself appears to many driving
on the nearby road which runs parallel to the castle. Well that doesn’t really sound strange,
obviously people driving would see the crumbling castle. But, here is the kicker. They do not see a crumbled old building but
a dwelling that is as new as the day it was built. Glass in the windows, flags flying and fallen
walls standing. Another strange fact is that 80% of all sightings
at the haunted castle occur during daylight hours. Many people see men, women and children in
old styles of clothing all around the castle grounds only for them to make a double take
and the person to be gone. These sighting have been happening for decades
and the castle features heavily in local folklore but recently the activity at the castle has
increased. Local news reported of a group of friends
visiting Berry Pomeroy during the early hours of a weekend morning. They had been intrigued by the legends and
scare factor of the castle. They took some pictures of their trip and
captured these images. The 19-year-old witness tells the newspaper
of how she was left startled to find ghostly images on the pictures she had taken. The witness named Chloe told local news
“We went in the early hours of this morning, the image was taken just before 1am. “I’ve never been there before, we weren’t
intending to actually go there but Tyler told us it was meant to be haunted so we thought
we would travel there. “Tyler is the only one who had been there
before, so we followed him down. She went onto to give her ideas on what they
had seen. Saying. “Lots of people think its horses chasing
someone, which I 100 per cent believe too. “Charlie never believed in ghosts before
and I have always been skeptical about it, I didn’t believe it 100 per cent until I
saw it for myself. “This photo is enough to make me believe.” She went on to tell of how the group walked
towards the castle and heard a noise which “sounded like an animal”, they thought
that they had perhaps triggered a sensor alarm. Chloe explained how the group hadn’t intended
to find any ghosts or evidence of the paranormal. She said: “Never in a million years did
I think I’d get a photo like this one. “I took the image just in front of the café
shack they have there. “It’s actually a beautiful castle but
just freaky at night.” What could she have heard and snapped? Going back into the turbulent history of the
castle and before it was sold to the Seymour family, it had come under siege. Legends of the two of the Pomeroy brothers
taking their own lives say that as they were chased by enemies, and rather than fall into
their hands. The brothers, dressed in full their armor,
rode their horses to the top of the castle ramparts and together leapt to their deaths. Many visitors claim they have heard screams
and noises in that area of the castle which has come to be known as, Pomeroy’s Leap. Do you think these photos provide proof? Have you seen or heard anything that proves
the existence of ghost and spirits? Would you be brave enough to stay at the castle
