Caldicot, Monmouthshire, Wales

Caldicot Castle

Caldicot Hall

Caldicot Hall (which was once called the “Great House”) was allegedly haunted by a “Lady in Grey”. As the house is no longer standing, has the grey lady disappeared from the location of the former great house?

Caldicot Castle

Caldicot Castle (pictured left by Ray Jones) is an imposing example of 12th Century fortification. It is a truly impressive place to visit - and it has its fair share of ghosts too.


These include brown monks and grey ladies. There have been reports of various other phenomena including footsteps, movement of objects and sudden drops in temperature.


Dogs’ behaviour has been known to be affected in parts of the castle.

Forge Row

Originally, Forge Row cottages were built as homes for industrial workers from the railways and tin mines. However, they eventually converted to business premises. People working at one of the premises felt that they were being watched by a female presence, the sound of a typewriter would be heard and a “woolly, almost cloudlike form” was seen.
