Magic Journey #3
Very impressive and to my surprise very psychically active!
The journey to the castle from the car park took around 10 minutes, and I was presented with awesome views of the ruins almost immediately. It was only when I passed under the ruined archway and into the courtyard surround by the perimeter walls that things turned to the paranormal!
I started walking across the courtyard and my head became filled with the clairaudient sounds of a bloody battle raging all around me. Men's cries in a language I couldn't grasp. The screams of women and children. It actually chilled me to the bones! Only because it was totally unexpected. I reached the remains of the keep (Pictured to the left) and read the history board that was placed there. I froze ... the castle had been besieged by The Scots in the 12th century .... it was no doubt the sounds of battle which filled my mind! The only thing I can't explain is the fact there were some voices that were shouting in a tongue that sounded very Arabic! I know Arabic fairly well because I lived and worked in the Middle East for a time back in 2006. What I can't explain is why I heard men's voice speaking Arabic in what appears to be a 12th century struggle between Norman conquerers and marauding Scots.
The remainder of the exploration went without a hitch and my unplanned visit to Brough Castle ended. I then had a 2.5 hour journey back home!
