HENRY'S KITCHEN /CARPENTER'S COURT (and video) - There are separate buildings for the Kitchen, and others for carpenters, blacksmiths, etc. They were all down an alleyway on the side of the castle (where we posed for the photo below). Tom and I both felt uneasy in the kitchen, and there were some ghosts still lingering in there, too- still cooking, still trying to please the king. Oddly, you could still smell the beef stew! Really!
GHOST AT THE ENTRYWAY - We took the walkway out and before we got outside the final gate, I (Rob) felt another ghost walk right through me. I physically got chilled.
- According to the "Palace Phantoms" brochure, the formal gardens on the east front is the location where a ghostly procession was seen by a constable in the early 1900s. The police officer reported two men in evening dress leading a group of eight or nine women down a gravel path. He thought they were coming into the palace (as we were going out). They formed a procession, walking two by two and then disappeared!
