"We're All Mad Here…."

Clitheroe Castle

Originally built as a defence, Clitheroe Castle was developed into a comfortable residence for Henry de Lacy in the 13th century. Later it became a gaol and a court. The castle was at one time moated, there was a chapel dedicated to St Michael and ancient documents mention an orchard below the castle. Several ghosts have been reported in the Castle at different times; a White Lady, an entire family, a maid, and a First World War soldier, but no-one can say who any of these apparitions were when they lived. Other people have reported strange smells, unexplained noises and areas of extreme coldness.
