Denbigh Castle

A White Lady, who is reputed to walk the castle ramparts, haunts Denbigh castle (pictured above). Goblin Tower is a part of the wonderful remains of Denbigh Castle, and is haunted by the ghost of a teenager. This youth is said to be the 15-year-old son of the castle’s builder, Henry De Lacy. He was playing on the scaffolding during the construction of the tower, when he lost his balance and fell to his death. Witnesses have reported seeing his face peering from one of the windows.

Plas Pren

All that remains of Plas Pren is a ruin set on desolate moorland. It was built as a hunting lodge at the turn of the 20th century, but was left in the 1950's for the wilderness to claim it. Locals claim that it is haunted by a luminous skeleton.

Vale Street

A bookshop in Vale Street was home to more than just books - it had its own ghost. The owner reported having a feeling that something was watching him. Following that, the owner sighted the figure of a “young man in blue overalls, with long, greasy hair”. This figure was gazing at the floor, and then vanished. He has apparently been sighted on a number of occasions.
