"Next time. I'll lots of glowing. You talk about a few places that we've actually visited one of which is language and this is popular tourist attraction in this part of Wales. Oh into the way. The staff dressed act in character while they take you on the toward the property. This new book. Yeah Kayak is one of the nicer ones. Actually because I tried my best contact. Everyone involved with this book. Someplace places some places I left out actually because they wanted nothing to do with it. They're like no get away from us. Nothing to do with ghosts. Don't mention Kaya very very cool. That's a nice pictures in there. Actually you mentioned the staff dressed up. All the staff dress steph dressed up which they sent me to use what they did say which makes Patrick is. They've got ghost tours and things which was some secrets on and they didn't want me blow in all their secrets by publishing in a book. So what I will say is if you read this and you enjoy the psychiatry Pablo impersonal walks. There are some other bits which which you can only get by by walking around but is I mean I don't know it. It's a museum which has been made to look like. It's still the sixteen forty five inside which was quite an important of the people that This was during the English civil war and was Colonel Edward Pritchard to own the property. At the time and he switched allegiances see was a royalist he switched and this sort of the the museum now tells the story of what was going on and the house. If you if you go to the house you'll find that it's it's really well fortified. It's not like a cozy house. It's almost like the half castle in in the way that it's sort of built to protect the people inside in case something goes wrong as as it could well do do during the English civil war but the most famous ghost weirdly has nothing to do with that period. It's Victorian Ghost it's called Martha or Mattie cold has a nickname and this ghost typical so the float in White Lady's Ghost and she is if you believe the story. There's no proof of this that I could find is supposed to have burnt to death in the house. Some horrible accident and now she comes back to haunt it with all the usual sort of sounds of your clothes. Roslyn and temperatures drop in full operations appearance some people and waking them in their sleep so matty really is the perfect host the whole lot. Best story actually. I found that was it was probably from the BBC about Halloween Yoko about the South African rugby deemed under twenty. One's who paid a visit and the captain of the team broke down in tears in the room. She was said to be holding and he couldn't explain. It had to get out of there and when he got out he said that room whatever was in. That room made him cry. So whether or not that was Mattie put in her her sadness entre Meenakshi had died in quite a horrible circumstances and she was passing that feeling onto him. Whatever it was. I don't know but it's quite nice to have a witness quite recent witness sort of backing up what other people have said for many years. I what high profile one as well. I mean. If you're the captain of a rugby team you know. It's the stereotypical person you might be watching the experts and looking at these things. It's quite a sort of a macho thing. Isn't it rugby sell? You have to have some like that. Cryan twisted as well. Yeah I think you wouldn't have set that up himself he wouldn't have. I've been ghost. Hunts myself when you know there's a couple of people who is always the same people? I just got pinched or just got pushed or just scratch is always the same ones every single time. Same people and so yeah like you said. I can't see this. Big Burly Ropy. Platt only twenty one. So still or under twenty one's so still you know at that time of his life. Where reputation is everything would would WANNA set himself up to to cry in a room? You mentioned the room actually in the book and I know the one that you're talking about the AETNA said I think they were all the people that there's quite a few places in this book but they sort of went above and beyond helping me with it and you know and it's a wonderful place and what I like is as you mentioned. There's there's always the odd person it goes to this place and says I've been pushed Blah Blah. But you can kind of put that one sideline Claire because it's just a cool historical building regardless and it just happens to have these really extra go stories connected to it as well. I've got to say the I learned a lot on that all because of the way they present it the way as I said they were impeded costume. The way they speak to you I it was. It was an amazing experience. I've been there twice. I choose remaining experience. Yes yes. That's my bet. Welsh tourism today accidentally after Hashtag them into the insult. Only when we have yes. You've spoken to about the south stack lighthouse to be honest. The reason I actually came across this is because I think it's really important my books if if it's called paranormal whales. It should cover all of Wales. I can't say I'm from Talbot is going to be a little talbot ghosts you know. I've got a cabin whole lot. And this was the most remote go story I could find writes off off. Anglesey ride off into the Irish sea on on this lighthouse. Which for the last bit of whales you'll see for you to Weiland and the story it's quite again. It's it's an interesting historical story regardless it just so happens it ends horribly and now there's a ghost story connected to it but there was a great storm which wrecked the Irish Sea. Still Great. It was called the great storm. The name of the stolen hundreds and hundreds of people died. Hundreds of people lost their lives at sea. It is said again how much truth you can put this. But some of the people died. Were gold perspectives coming back from Australia. On their way to Liverpool going around Wales that way and rolls and lose their gold actually strapped these basel goals to their belts and things to try and swim to safety with it. Write them down. It's obvious you're so. Yeah I mean it was a horrible horrible thing. Even Chelsea Dickens Kim visit after the storm. It was big news. That you know was attracting people like Dick to come into the pay their respects and things and I think you mentioned in one of his one of his books is not as works affection but one of his one of his ducks pretty much. The only people who could do anything to help the boats see at that time with the people in the south stack lighthouse. That was a keep of that. Always the keeper and they always had their systems now the assistant at the time when the storm was somewhere else on the island and he had to pretty much run as quickly as he could to get to the lighthouse to help out the main man. Although actually say main man there was also made woman there as well so Equal opportunities in the light has actually yes but he. He ran as quickly as he could. And I don't know if anyone knows south stat like us if not it's probably worth Papa. Google and doing a quick look at this because the bridge lead into it is even back then. It's been rebuilt since but back. Then it's like of Bridge Indiana Jones Cross and things would go wrong you know. It was really scary looking for the big drop. You've got like a picture in your book event. Yes I'd pitcher which actually shows looking down. Yeah Yeah Nasty Rox done. That is not a nice place to be folded but he didn't fall luckily but it was just as bad as he was running. The rocks came loose from the cliffs. Above one of these rocks came landed crack on his head and pretty much knocked him senseless than there was. There was blood borne out and also grisly details and yet he persevered got over that bridge. Got The lighthouse and tried banging on the door to get in his bangs not yet over the storm and it wasn't until the next day that the keeping came when things die down a bit and found his body slumped outside not a good way. He wasn't dead by this point and they did get into hospital but the injury and be left outside. He didn't last much longer. Afterwards and nowadays the ghostly things there have all been accurate to him. What she'd if you believe the story you think they kind of add up. The ghost is set to be banging on the door looking in the windows trying to attract attention in this remote spot. I did like one detail about it wherever the ghost is said to be making these Eerie squawking noises which somebody pointed out. There's a bird reserve right next to it. It's probably the PUFF INS whatever puts. They've got their make it those those kind of supernatural noises but it's certainly not the puffing banging on the door to get in so is meant to be ghost did like the fact that you actually included that though because there are a lot of people who write about the paranormal now. We'll just stick to the paranormal elements of the story. If you like offer any other explanations yes most most of the reviews that I see my work. People do say that my approach is very journalistic. Because I'm a journalist by trade and hopefully you just doing my job correctly. Then that's what it should be. I'm not trying to convince people goes to real ought in all all I'm saying is is the facts. You use your own brain rarely in your own mind for going on so so yes all of those pets. They'll go into the book. I thought. Then the story of the hotel in neath where the guys sitting there reading his paper and then you know somebody's sitting next to him or whatever and then lowers pays Susan doesn't it yeah. I should give credit. The niece one is courtesy of Robert. King I've never known anyone right so many ghosts books on one small area really. He published a few books now. Just just on. Letham the ghosts there and I met with world. That's just to make sure that these storks some some of his books were good old now but I met with him. And you're very kind to sort of show me exactly what these things happened and to confirm that people are still seeing ghosts there nowadays so this is all relevant. Bang up to date. And the the ghost you mentioned was what he called the cavalier. Whatever cavalier addresses in this is what this goes to set to be wearing and the man was reading his paper and you can see the legs next trip so he knew there was somebody there and as he moved his is up from the legs he could see the body wherein the cavalier body stuff and then we pay them to look at the person's face it was no head and then they disappeared and they were gone. So so. That's that one but there's lots of other little things the cast l'hotel is quite handy because one of the best Christmas ghost stories that I've come across people love ghost stories at Christmas so I can use this one for Avenue to tell you the story with with Golda Sunshine outside and zip blue. Isn't it weird when this happened? It was Christmas Eve. Hotel locked up. They run last. Orders kicked everyone out and it was just the assistant manager on one member of staff left downstairs waiting to go home when they hear what sounded like someone running about upstairs and what. They went back up to the hotel bit. They found all the doors which have been closed and locked. Were Open again. All the lights were turned on all the rooms and they thought well. This is a bit weird because people in the building just a tad. Yes and even if we weren't why would they be opening locked doors and turning lights on and things they locked up again and they said we'd better tell the owner who who came round to investigate himself he's dealt with him and three of them plus. Doke went upstairs to have a look round. It's open again. The dog bit crazy instead of dot in round Balkan in each room and again they couldn't find anyone and that was the end of that for that didn't happen again but what is interesting. Is that two years later. Somebody again here this running around on Christmas Eve. So whatever. The says ghost or Prankster. They seem to like messing around in the CASTELLINIS on Christmas Eve so if anyone is looking for Christmas ghosts. Neef is needed the place to be ready neath thought cans in London. It would really want me up to be honest with you have ghosts. I mean the kind of goes just alike walks around upstairs or whatever could I could handle but one this actually customer money turn all the lights on would really would really wine the maybe the opposite exactly shelf maybe do Washington you know. Get the loan. Bitcoin and it'd be nice. It's just looking for a place to put a Christmas tree that's all. That's when I was a child. I remember a school trip. In fact most children suppose in south Wales when on this trip? And that was to some falcons remember. Well actually I can't remember a lot about my trip toll. There was certainly nothing. The teachers ready spoke about the I remember. I remember running around with my mates and looking for the next place to buy ice cream but I can't remember much about the facts..
