The Ghost of Lumley originates from the centuries old story of a woman named Lily Lumley, who was secretly married to Ralph Lumley before he met his wife Eleanor Neville. The story goes that two priests threw Lily down a well on the castle grounds as punishment for her refusal of the Catholic faith. The priests then told Ralph that Lily had left to become a nun.
Some say the ghost of Lumley floats up from the well and still haunts the castle to this day. The last notable reporting sightings of paranormal activity was from visiting cricket teams in 2005. However, if the paranormal interests you, we strongly recommend a visit to our Lily of Lumley themed escape room!
