Enchanted Living is the inspiration behind my Photography, art, and creativity. Imaginative local stories for all the family.
Lumley Castle Dene lies just outside the castle grounds. This beautiful natural area is great for nature and creativity walks.
This area is also a quiet spot not far from the more popular Chester-le-Street Riverside Park.
Lumley Castle Ghosts
Lily Lumley, the 14th Century lady of the Manor, was murdered by two Catholic priests when she refused to convert to the Catholic faith.
To hide her body, the priests threw her down a well on the property.
The vengeful wraith of Lady Lily has been witnessed wandering the castle.
She is said to let out a bone chilling shriek as she flys towards whomever is unlucky enough to encounter her. She vanishes just before she strikes, leaving a very frightened witness.
Black Jack enjoys playing innocent pranks. He steals belongings and hides them in strange places, he pushes glasses off tables, and slamming doors.
Screaming and laughing children, and a strange man sat at the bar are other apparitions that have been seen or heard.

Enchanted Living is the inspiration behind my Photography, art and creativity.
I am standing amid an aliveness, and that aliveness deserves my attention, my respect, my care …
The insects and birds and animals are singing themselves into being; this autumn land is dreaming and I am part of that dreaming.
Why Is Photography Important?
I’ve read that children feel safe, welcome, seen and loved if there are images of themselves in the family home. I love this idea and think this is something every family needs to know.
You see stories, memories and keepsakes are important. Life is short. Our humanity is what makes us beautiful. The light will never look or be seen the same again and neither will we. We will never have this moment again.
So, let’s capture it!
