Margam Castle and its surrounds is a hive of paranormal activity, JON REES says


Just outside of Swansea near the town of Port Talbot, is Margam Country Park.
At the centre of the park is the imposing gothic structure of Margam Castle, a 19th century country house.
Many paranormal events have been centred around the house and grounds in recent years and it is regularly the site of paranormal investigations and documentary filming.
The most regularly reported ghost is that of Robert Scott, a former gamekeeper who was murdered by poachers and is now seen climbing the main staircase.
He is also said to be responsible for much poltergeist activity and has been known to throw stones at anyone who tries to make contact with him.
There have been reports of Victorian children who can be heard playing and giggling and sometimes people have seen them in the corner of their eyes darting out of rooms.
They have also been known to move objects mischievously around the house.
There have also been sightings of a dark figure wandering the grounds at night and disembodied voices have been heard talking at night.
Finally, the Abbey ruins in the grounds of the country park have been the home to sightings of ghostly monks.
