EP28 A Ghost Story for Christmas Eve; or, Festive Spirits at the Inn: A real-life tale of paranormal activity at a Welsh town’s “most haunted” pub on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast
Dec 10th, 2020
There is a Welsh pub which is said to be haunted by many ghosts, which range from the good old "lady in black" to a "headless cavalier."
They are, for most part, seemingly harmless enough, but on Christmas Eve a more troublesome phantom - a pesky poltergeist, you might say - has been known to cause mischief at the Castle Hotel in Neath.
This spirit - of the supernatural variety, rather than the alcoholic - has been reported on more than one occasion, and by multiple witnesses.
What is causing such a commotion on what should be a holy night, when nothing stirs, not even a mouse?
For some answers - and probably even more questions - please join your host Mark Rees (author of Ghosts of Wales etc.) for a special festive episode of the Ghosts & Folklore of Wales podcast with Mark Rees.
Merry Christmas / Nadolig llawen!
