    2 separate experiences here..a boy seen sat on a chair with 2 other daughter and I spoke to was only after we realised that the smallest boy did not speak one word ..and the other 2 children didn’t seem to acknowledge him..

    The other was at the orangery..strangely enough on a halloween party night..I was wearing a black 100yr old velvet cape..had a photo which came out like a ghosty figure of a man all around my head..clutching me..face looked like a skull..very scary when I first saw it…..

  2. I visited the castle a few years back.
    I had no prior knowledge of any hauntings.
    My niece and her daughter were in the room past the grand staircase doing crafts.
    I stopped dead in front of the staircase after ‘sensing’ a presence.
    I shot a few photos hoping to capture this.
    I did.
    To the right side of the staircase I’ve captured a giant orange red orb.
    I sensed someone was standing to the left of the open doorway right side of the staircase.
    Protecting the stairs…
    I never knew about the murder until today.
    A red orange orb is a guardian angel.
    I’m a clairvoyant medium.

  3. I had been working in Margam recently and had just been trying to fix something under a desk. As I knelt I felt a huge presence behind me, someone quite large with wide shoulders. I have always been able to feel things like this, so i had an inclination that this wasn’t someone physically there, regardless as i was supposed to be working alone, I asked if anyone was there and of course got no response. I had repeating thoughts of random anger, something “…Scott” after leaving site i searched, and found a ton of info on Robert Scott, which did admittedly freak me out!
