Newcastle Castle Keep

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Newcastle Castle Keep

“The Poppy Girl” is the nickname for a woman who was thrown in the castle prison, before suffering a horrific death. Visitor become aware of her presence because they will pick up the smell of flowers passing by. Another woman is seen in the chamber, monks are heard chanting, disembodied voices echo all throughout, and shadows are common in the photographs.
