The story of Pengersick Castle.
The Pengersick Castle and
surrounding area dates back to the Bronze Age. The castle or what is left of it
can be found in the parish of Breage. In 1890, all that remained were fragments
and part of the tower. Many of the upper rooms have fallen in but one oak panel
in an area called the Perseverance does remain with the following wording
“What thing is harder than the rock?
What softer is than water clear?
Yet wyll the same, with often droppe,
The hard rock perce as doth a spere.
Even so, nothing so hard to attayne,
But may be hadde, with labour and payne.”
The Pengersick castle has a reputation for sorcery,
mystery, magic and of course ghosts. Many people have reported that 20 different
ghosts haunt the area. The most popular ghosts include a 14th century monk, a
little boy around age 4 that will tug at women’s dress tails and a young teenage
girl around 13 who while dancing fell to her death off the battlements, today
she is reported to grab visitors and swing them around as if dancing.
One very mysterious and unnerving sight to see is
one of the re-enactment of a medieval murder that occurred many years ago. Other
entities include a man standing and swaying in a corner, a young woman lying on
a bed with ghostly covers, another woman has been seen walking through a wall
and then pacing the room, a woman that stabbed to death is known to haunt the
castle walls, and near a fireplace in 1546 a man was stabbed and then strangled
to death. Not only have these mysterious ghosts appeared to many people that
visitor Pengersick castle but also some have seen ghosts of cats and dogs.
The scariest story ever is one of John Milliton.
John Milliton was believed to practice the black arts and even claimed he was an
alchemist. It is believed that he practiced his black magic in the tower
bedroom. He is has been told that a demon was captured in the fireplace and
still remains there today.
No matter, how these legends began, many people
have seen these ghosts and felt their presence of several occasions. If you
decide to visit the area, be sure not to travel alone.
