Dailypost.co.ukDon’t be spooked by Gwrych Castle’s ‘ghost’
A HISTORIAN who’s spent his life trying to restore and publicise an Abergele castle has dismissed a paranormal investigator’s ghost story, fearing it may spook potential buyers.
Mark Baker spoke out after Kevin Horkin, owner of a management company for psychics, reportedly took photographs of a ghost at Gwrych Castle – which is in the process of being sold.
Mr Dorkin claimed the ghostly image appeared when he was downloading the pictures from his camera.
He plans to buy the landmark and turn it into a psychic retreat, adding that he has already submitted a bid in the region of £850,000.
However, according to Mr Baker, the castle is worth nowhere near that much.
He said: “To say that this is a ghost in Gwrych Castle, I think, is completely untrue.
“He’s claiming he’s paid nearly a million pounds for it? It is not worth that much at all.”
Mr Horkin has a professional interest in the paranormal and said he appreciates it may seem like a hoax.
“To many people, I am sure, it looks as if we are just trying to drum up publicity,” he admitted."

Science journalism is no exception. Online and e-journalism, including citizen journalism, is changing not only media platforms but also content and focus.
Sometimes, this is perceived as, and generally acknowledged to be, a trend that has some negative aspects. However, parts of these changes are related to more vigorous coverage of topics that science journalists may have been covering inadequately.
Often sticking with safe and conventional science topics, some science journalists might have missed very interesting emerging developments in a range of scientific areas."
