This property has long since been demolished. It was located on the land to the north of Caldicot Church, and had the
reputation of being haunted by a lady in grey. However, is this merely an anecdotal tale, or does the apparition still walk
the site of the old house?
The Ghost of Forge Row
A business now occupies one of the properties at Forge Row. The buildings were built to house industrial workers and
their families during the late 19th century. During the 1980's it emerged that a friendly presence was about in the premises
of one particular firm. Workers have reported that a friendly woman is watching them, and the smell of cooking or flowers
is found around the premises.
Castle is set in fifty-five acres of beautiful Country Park. The river Neddern winds its way through areas of woodland and
pasture and the wildlife pond is complete with a pond-dipping station. The park offers an ideal setting for picnics and walks
against the magnificent backdrop of the medieval castle walls, with picnic tables and barbecue hearths on site.
Founded by the Normans, developed in royal hands as a stronghold
in the Middle Ages and restored as a Victorian family home, the castle has a romantic and colourful history. Find out about its past with an audio tour, explore the medieval towers and take in the breath-taking views
of the parklands and surrounding area from the battlements.
This imposing and grand castle is home
to brown monks, white robed monks, a grey lady, and many have experienced cold spots, footsteps heard in vacant parts of the
building and objects moved by unseen hands. During a visit there in 1992, Dylan Jones was speaking to Dennis Manning the park
warden, and detected a temperature drop of 10 degrees Celsius in one of the towers - in a room heated by an electric fire,
with doors and windows shut tight. The drop was witnessed by both over a couple of seconds on the thermometer. The atmosphere
in the room was felt to be more than a little strange at that time!
