Before exploring some of the haunted tales that can be found throughout these cities, you should know that Birmingham is within the English West Midlands, which is considered one of the largest main cities. Below you will learn of an extremely haunted castle, as well as a few roads you might not want to drive down on your own.
Venturing into the Boggy Woods and you might find yourself face-to-face with a tall, dark figure, which can be seen standing on a bridge by a small lake in the area. When he is spotted, it is said that he will disappear into thin air and leaves will scatter without any sign of wind. If you are traveling down the Brightstone Road at about 3 in the morning, you may hear noises that resemble screams. It is thought that the screams come from the ghost of a young boy who disappeared without a trace and was never located.
Another road that presents strange happenings around 3 in the morning is Sherburne Road, which is haunted by the ghost of an elderly man, who wears a top hat and period clothing. He has been spotted picking up papers along the side of the road. While shopping at Kangs Discount Store, some shoppers claim to have viewed quite an unbelievable spectacle. Some believe that they witnessed a lollipop walk out of the shop without anyone holding onto it. Was it a ghost, an illusion or a figment of many people’s imagination?
If you are interested in a place that is supposed to be the home of numerous ghosts, then you will want to hear of the Dudley Castle. The most common ghost sightings involve The Grey Lady, The Medieval Lady, The Black Monk, as well as Lady Jane.
The Grey Lady is believed to be the ghost of a woman by the name of Dorothy Beaumont, who passed away from natural causes. It is thought that she lost her life during childbirth. Her ghost is said to wander about the castle steps because her husband did not attend her funeral.
The Medieval Lady has been described as an elderly figure, who can be seen wearing a gray shawl, as well as cloth wrapped around her feet. Her most famous sighting was during a medieval dress competition that was held at the castle during 1983. She won the contest, but disappeared once attention was called to her.
The Black Monk has been sighted by an array of different visitors, as well as by members of the staff.
Lady Jane was a former resident of the castle, but had been beheaded, causing her ghost to roam about the castle grounds, appearing to visitors and employees.
The castle’s paranormal activity caught the attention of a television station that was interested in airing a live paranormal investigation. This took place on Halloween in 2002, broadcasting throughout the United Kingdom. A resident medium claimed to come into contact with several different ghosts, including the Medieval Lady, who made her presence known by making a tapping sound and moving objects around the room.
