The haunting in Castletown...

For a history trip we went to Castletown House. Everyone dreading the walk in the wet and cold rain but we eventually got a bus. :) We were soon off  in our groups and on with the tour. It was a great insight into the background of the house, land, who owned it and many facts. Its much more bigger than expected also beautiful interior. Even people back then had good taste! 

The most interesting fact for me was the story of the devil in the house. It is said that when the devil was present the bible that was thrown cracked the mirror and remains cracked to this day. As he vanished into a flame of smoke.....

                   It was a great day getting some useful information and also having a fun day out. :)
