Portchester Castle is reputed to be haunted by several ghosts, a black monk, and a spectral horseman seen riding through the grounds. There has been evidence of satanic witchcraft rituals found within the graveyard, inside the castle walls.
The medieval Portchester Castle is set within the walls of a 3rd-century Roman fort, the most completely preserved example north of the Alps. It stands imposingly on a low lying tongue of land that projects out into the natural harbour of Portsmouth.
The castle was established after the Norman Conquest. Surviving medieval structures include the 12th-century great tower and a royal residence of the 1390s. Portchester remained important for medieval English kings because of its position by Portsmouth harbour, and was occupied into the 17th century. It then served as a prisoner-of-war camp, holding over 5000 French Soldiers after Britain was stirred to action during the Napoleonic Wars, until 1814.
