Spread over two nights, the Most Haunted team head to the Sussex countryside, and the Weald and Downland open air museum. Set in 50 acres of land it houses all manner of buildings that were once under threat of demolition, but have since been taken apart and moved to their current location. With them dating from between the 13th and 19th century, there is potentially plenty for the team to discover.moreless
Gregynog Hall is situated in Powys, mid-Wales, and has been passed through many hands throughout the years. The current building, made entirely of concrete, but with mock Tudor wooden beams on the outer walls, was built in the 1840's by Charles Hanbury-Tracy.
Once used by the Davies sisters, Margaret and Gwendoline, as a rehabilitation house during the war, they handed it over to the University of Wales in 1963, who now use it as a conference and study centre for their students.
But with a strong history of paranormal activity, will the Most Haunted team be able to uncover it's secrets?
The Augustinian building was constructed in the 12th century on a bend in the River Coquet, 4 miles east of Rothbury in Northumberland. Part of the English Heritage, along with it's adjacent Manor House, both buildings stand empty but open to visitors.
Stories of sightings include monks, and a mysterious woman at an upper floor window. Will the team encounter them?
Tonight the team head to the English/Scottish border and Carlisle Castle. Most famous for having Mary Queen of Scots imprisoned within its walls in 1568, the castle switched hands between the English and Scottish many times over it's long history. Once used as a prison and barracks for the military, it still houses, to this day, the headquarters of a Royal Regiment. One of the many ghosts said to haunt the building is that of a woman found bricked up in a wall. Her skeleton was discovered on the second floor of the keep in the 1830's, and her presence is said to have caused one soldier to die of fright. What will the Most Haunted team uncover?moreless

The current incarnation of the castle was built in 1153 AD, and used as a shell keep. It played a part in two historical events - housing West Country barons while they were on their way to fight King John in Runnymead, before the Magna Carta was signed, and, perhaps more well known, for the incarceration of Edward II, who was deposed by his Queen, Isabella, and her lover Roger Mortimer.
The King was tortured, and died an agonising death. His screams, according to legend, can still be heard each year on the anniversary of his passing.
