Join The Haunting Nights Team as we take you on a ghost hunt to the mysterious Cannock Chase, and home to The Black Eyed Children.

The Hauntings of The Ancient Castle Ring

Years of reported hauntings and mysterious sightings, are waiting for you as you join us on a ghost hunting experience like no other.

This area of the Chase is probably one of the earliest parts of the District to have been populated, with the impressive earthworks being built over 2,000 years ago. With some saying a portal to another dimension.

Eye witnesses have reported the sighting of black eyed children moving around in the centre of the ring. White ghostly figures are often seen in the same areas, noises of hammering, chanting and singing.

Yeti or Bigfoot type creatures in the surrounding woods, Wolves, Black Panthers, U.F.Os, Aliens, Earth Lights. In fact, there is so much alleged activity at the ring we just have no idea what spooky happenings the night will bring.

The Castle Ring is thought to be a pagan burial site. Experts believe the dead would have been buried just outside of the castle in burial mounds. There are a few large mounds which are like burial mounds found elsewhere in the UK.

The Park Gate Inn

Our base for the night dates back to the 1600’s. This former toll gate is now an Inn and is just a stones throw from the ring. The Inn has had numerous reports of paranormal activity for many years.

A former Landlord, staff and visitors to the inn have witnessed ghostly figures. Floating orbs and inexplicable temperature changes in the areas which date back to the 1600s.

Several locals claim the activity is linked to the death of a former landlady in 1969.
