PRLog - Mar. 18, 2012 - Come and Join Simply Ghost Nights in the most haunted of locations overlooking none other than Pendle Hill. Clitheroe Castle is a creepy place with many ghost sightings.

The norman castle Keep of Clitheroe has been on site for more than 800 years. There have been many changes in the course of the towns history but the characteristics stay much the same, welcoming folk with a tale or two to tell and a pride in their town and traditions.

Clitheroe grew from an insignificant Saxon hamlet to a town of importance in the district. Its first Charter was granted by Henry De Lacy, who died in the Holy Land in 1177. A further Charter granted by Henry De Lacy in 1283 extended the privileges of early inhabitants. A third Charter of 1307 gave the burgesses the woods of Salthill and Coplow. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1 Clitheroe was created a Parliamentary Borough and for a period returned two members to Westminster.

Until the Municipal Corporations Act of 1835, the borough was governed by two bailiffs. After the Act the old authorities were replaced by the Mayor and Town Council consisting of 4 Aldermen and 12 Councillors.

In 1974 after Local Government re-organisation, Clitheroe, whilst retaining Parish status along with its own Town Mayor and Council, became the administrative centre and part of the newly formed Ribble Valley Borough authority.

The towns industry was mainly agricultural in the early years and the population small but expanded exponentially through the heady days of 'King Cotton', this was when the town boasted of 13 cotton mills and all the associated industries that came with it, sadly there is but one mill still in business today. Industry has moved on to the more modern styles of today such as cement, clothing, electrical and chemical manufacture.

Ghost sightings include :- A lady in White has to be the most reported sighting, a man and woman with a child have made their presence felt on a few occasions too. A young servant girl and even a soldier also haunt this location. Maybe even the pendle witched themselves may come and put in an appearence.
