ROCH CASTLE
Pembroke

 

HISTORY & HAUNTINGS:

Built in the 13 th century by a Norman Knight, Roch Castle marks the northern limit of the Norman Conquest of West Wales.

In the 1630’s it was home to Lucy Walter who later became consort of Charles II and mother of the Duke of Monmouth.

In 1644 it was garrisoned for King Charles I but surrendered to Cromwell’s troops later that year.

After the Civil War it slowly fell into ruin until it was restored in 1900 by the first Viscount St David’s, friend and frequent host to Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts movement, and to David Lloyd George, Great Britain’s Prime Minister from 1916 to 1922.

The castle is said to be haunted by Lucy Walters, who has been seen floating through locked rooms wearing a white dress and she maybe the cause of the noisy running footsteps which mysteriously disturb the sleep of guests on occasions
