Dudley Castle was first founded in 1071 on a limestone hill overlooking the town of Dudley. In 1530 it was rebuilt by John Dudley as a Renaissance palace and, like many castles, it changed hands time and time again over the years. It was the home to many Lords and had visits by endless royalty. During the Industrial Revolution, coalmines and limestone quarries were built underneath the castle, where many workers were injured and more died. A three day fire ruined much of the building and limited funds meant the castle was abandoned and is now in ruins. The Dudley family have regained ownership of the castle and they decided to found the Dudley Zoo there in 1937.
With so much history behind Dudley Castle it is not surprising that it is one of the most haunted places in the Midlands. Many of the zoo workers work long hours in a 17th Century stone house, once estate offices for the Earl of Dudley. There have been sightings of The Grey Lady, thought to be the ghost of Mrs Dorothy Beaumont, seen looking for her husband who was prevented from being buried beside her. There have also been sightings of the black monk, and the medieval lady, along with the usual unexplained sounds, changes in temperature and whisperings.
The investigation started off very quickly. Derek picked up on the energy of a man with an axe, suggesting he was one of the many mineworkers that died. He then managed to connect with a Lady Jane, who was believed to have been beheaded in the 1500s. Derek later sensed the presence of a distraught elderly man, Richard Sutton, who was pointing upwards to a nearby tower. It was verified that he was pointing at the tower because his wife Margaret had been thrown to her death by five young men who believed her to be a witch. He then sensed the presence of The Grey Lady; it seemed that she oversees the whole castle. While in the kitchen a locked off camera picked up a strange moving shadow, which also caused the EMF to have a minor fluctuation. Derek picked up on the energies of a young woman, as well as a devious monk.
As the crew carried on through the ruins many more strange things happened: the batteries in the EMF seems to be draining extremely quickly, and Derek sensed a women named Alice, who believed she was competing in a costume competition. Richard then revealed a story of a woman matching her description winning such a contest and mysteriously vanishing before receiving her prize. The investigation concluded where it began in the Undercroft where Derek picked up on the name John Somerby connected to the sarcophagus.
