Haunted Happenings Ghost Hunts

Oxford Castle Ghost Hunts - Oxford

Oxford Castle sits in the heart of Oxfordshire with a history dating back to the Norman Conquest. Execution, murderous plotting and barbaric incidents are firmly ingrained in Oxford castle's torrid history and the activity experienced on Haunted Happenings overnight host hunts here has often been very intense. Oxford Castle is a Norman medieval castle sited on the western side of the centre of Oxford in Oxfordshire. Although partly ruined, this is a large castle which still has most of its structure intact. The original moated wooden motte and bailey castle was rebuilt with stone during the 11th century. Oxford Castle played an important role in the Anarchy conflict.

The military element of the castle ceased during the 14th century and its primary used was for county administration, imprisonment and the courts. During the English Civil War most of Oxford Castle was destroyed and by the 18th century what buildings were left became used as a local prison.

The newer prison complex was built on the site during the late 17th century and expanded on during the 18th century eventually becoming HM Prison, Oxford. This prison was used until recently, closing in 1996. The medieval remains of the castle, including the motte itself and St George’s Tower, the Crypt and many other areas are Grade I listed buildings and are named as scheduled monuments.

The Crypt, which sits eerily beneath Oxford Castle is a daunting place so you will need your wits about you on your overnight ghost hunt and you may even encounter the infamous jailer who's footsteps are often heard on the prison wing corridor. Whatever you experience, you are sure to leave your ghost hunt with an experience you will not forget.
