History of Dudley Castle
Originally built around 1071 and recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, the Castle has passed through the hands of many families and also suffered greatly as the result of many battles.
John Dudley (the man executed by Mary I for plotting to bring Lady Jane Grey to the Throne in her place) was present here in 1536 during the height of his power and the Castle eventually suffered its last tragic blow during the Civil War when the Royalist Soldiers were defeated by Cromwell and the Castle was 'slighted'. Much bloodshed and misery has occurred on this land and there are now many ghost stories associated with the history of Dudley Castle which seem reluctant to go away.
Ghosts of Dudley Castle
