St Briavels Castle is widely regarded as the most haunted castle in the whole of England. Very few people who visit here, leave without witnessing some kind of unexplained activity. Its wide variety of haunted happenings, and the frequency in which they occur, has led to the castle being a number 1 hotspot for ghost hunters nationwide.
St Briavels Castle is a Norman castle that was originally built between 1075 and 1129, and was first used as an administrative office for the area of the Forest of Dean. King John used the castle as a hunting lodge in the early 13th century, later becoming the primary place where quarrels (used for crossbows) were manufactured. The castle then transferred hands many times among senior nobility throughout the 14th and 15th centuries, ultimately declining in both importance and appearance over the next century.
The castle was then primarily used as a court and debtors’ prison, in the 18th and 19th centuries. However, following local riots, its use as a prison was ceased.
