Castle Rising Castle (above) is a ruined castle, built in about 1138 by William d'Aubigny, 1st Earl of Arundel, who also owned Arundel Castle. Much of its square keep, surrounded by a defensive mount, is intact. Lord Howard of Rising, a descendant of William d’Aubigny, currently owns it.
The apparition of the displaced former queen, Isabella of France, who died here, haunts it. It is said that her “maniacal screams” resonate around the ruins.
