Legend has it that there are ghosts that lurk here are from the magnificent funeral that Edward held for his father and brother. The sound of trumpets, lyres and other instruments mingles with the gentle singing of mournful hymns. The sounds have been heard intermittently ever since that sad day in 1461. Unfortunately we didn't see any!
I only live 15 minutes from Richards burial place and spend most of my Saturdays with him so visiting Fotheringhay which is only 45 minutes away seemed like a lovely idea for our road trip......
The stonework and staircase at the nearby Talbot Hotel in Oundle , is said to come from the ruins of Fotheringhay castle.
Mary, Queen of Scots was executed at the castle in 1587 and it was this that caused her son and grandson to undertake a thorough demolition of the castle.
