Arundel the Spookiest Place in the World

Author: Musa Aykac

Well I have been to many spooky places in my lifetime, from dark sewers to underground smugglers caves. When I visited Arundel in Sussex, in the UK I could tell there was something different. It was very dark when I arrived so I was feeling quite sleepy and just wanted to get my head down.

There has been many ghostly experiences in the little village of Arundel, all originating from the terrifying story that took place over 100 years ago. A girl and boy that were in love, the girl felt the love so strong but one day her partner decided that he no longer had the same feelings for the young women. She was devastated she didn't know how she was going to go on, all her family and friends said that you will get over this in time, she knew she couldn't, the tension just got too much that one night this young lady strolled down to the Arundel castle and climbed the tower and threw herself off. Sometimes fellow villagers say that if you go to the tower at around 10pm you can see her standing at the top looking for her love.

So as I do not believe in ghost and ghoul stories I planned an hour excursion in the closed tower on my own at 10pm. I have to say I was just feeling abit nervous as everywhere I went in the village people were saying to me "are you crazy?" please do not go up there alone. It was my decision I had to see what all the fuss was about, never mind that Arundel is considered one of the most haunted places in the world.

Well it came to around 9pm, I walked up the big hill to the castle, when I got there I was greeted by one of the 24 hour guards. I made my way in looking around the castle was a great experience it had an ore of untouched tradition about it. After strolling around I started making my way to the tower where the incident had occurred all so many years ago. While walking up the tower steps I could hear a sort of whisper he-hel-help, was it just my brain playing tricks with me? I got to the top with my beloved camera recording everything, I waited getting more and more anxious for the clock to strike 10, it then did I waited and waited and nothing happened, I put my camera around my neck and headed home what a waste of time.

The next morning I woke up and plugged my camera in the TV I wanted to watch and delete some parts, it came to the area where I was walking up the steps to the tower I was very excited because I wanted to see if I was just hearing things, the moment came and bang the camera went all fuzzy I fast forwarded and the image came back when I reached the bottom of the stairs. I was not imagining things it was her spirit controlling my camera, now I will always believe and remember Arundel is the scariest place in the world.
