First built in 1106 this castle in Mumbles has been destroyed in numerous battles and then rebuilt as it passed from owner to owner. The current picturesque ruins which sit in a small woodland with views over Swansea Bay are popular with tourists and locals alike. Haunted by a ‘woman in white’, she has been seen wandering around the exterior walls of the castle while crying inconsolably. The young lady’s white robes have been ripped open to show bloody lacerations across her back. It is said that she was a medieval prisoner who was whipped to death in the castle’s dungeon, where the whipping post can still be seen today.
