The story of Castle Keep.
Castle Keep is one of the oldest
buildings in Newcastle. It was built on the same exact site where once stood an
old Roman fort along the River Tyne. Here is where the castle was built by
William the Conquerors eldest son in 1080. This is the castle that gave
Newcastle its name.
The building was restored in the 1800’s and again
the 1970’s. Today, it is a popular museum that is visited by guests year round.

cannon balls, Norman gravestones that date back to years prior to the building
of the keep, old city arms, and plaques from the Tyne medieval bridge was that

Several visitors have reported seeing unusual
lights, changes in temperature, hearing footsteps and voices.
The only ghost that anyone really talks about is
the own of a poppy girl. She would visit the Castle and sell poppies on a
regular schedule. However, on one of her visits she was brutally murdered. No
one knows much about the murder or if they do, they still do not explain more
than the fact that she was murdered. Many have seen her ghost drifting through
the halls of the castle.
Investigators of paranormal activity have
authenticated the unusual lights, fluctuations in temperature, electromagnetic
fields, and recorded footsteps and voices.
