Paranormal Phenomena : It is alleged that a green lady appears in an upstairs window. The folklore tells that she is a servant who was dismissed from her post because she was expecing a child and subsequently committed suicide.
Another alleged apparition in the castle is a monk who was reputedly murdered by being walled up in the castle. Residents say they feel as though they are being watched – and objects mysteriously move from one room to another.
