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. The very first thing that most people notice is the various staircases that lead to different areas of the three story Keep. Each staircase will lead you to the King’s Chambers, the Queen’s chambers, the Gallery, the Great Hall, the dungeon, and the Norman Chapel. What is very strange is there are several staircases that lead nowhere.

Throughout the museum you will find musket balls, 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 destroyed in 1771.

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.
