On Monday 7th March 2016, 13 ladies from Newcastle East Trefoil Guild took part in an 'Active Ghost Walk' called Til Death Do Us Part.
Steve Taylor, our Ghost Chaser started the 'walk' at the historic Castle Keep and told us tales of the 'lost souls' that frequent the locality surrounding the Keep, the Castle Garth and the Blackgate.
He also took us down the steps of the Side and to the dark alley ways behind ending at the back of the House of Tides which was believed to have been a 16th Century Witch Doctor/Alchemist's House. All taken with a 'pinch of salt' it was a fun but cold evening and although no 'ghost' was sighted it was an interesting evening with tales of 'Old Newcastle'.
