During the 1950’s over 500 people committed suicide and the number kept on rising the following years.

Anyone brave enough to pay the cave a visit?
Leap Castle in Ireland
Also known as the Bloody Chapel, this is where two brothers fought for full authority. One of the brothers was the priest of the chapel, he was killed without mercy by his own brother. It’s not only the blood of one man but the blood of prisoners whose spirits now flow in the grounds of the chapel. Prisoners were thrown in an oubliette and were left to die.
There are many entities roaming the castle, but one in particular is the elemental. A hunched violent beast that smells like rotting flesh.
Edinburgh Castle in Scotland
Edinburgh has a very deep history and some of them tackle paranormal beliefs. The castle is famous for a legend about a piper who was sent to a tunnel opening to investigate. The piper played his pipes to notify the observers monitoring his every movement. The sound of the pipe started to minimize and finally disappeared. Some of the locals claim that they hear the sound of the piper up to today. If that’s not spooky enough, Edinburgh is also home to a headless drummer, spectral dog and phantom prisoners.
Borley Rectory, Essex
Once upon a time a monk and a nun fell in love with each other. They decided escape the monastery to live a happy life together. Unfortunately, just like some tragic romantic stories, they were caught. The elders of the monastery ordered the monk to be hanged and the nun to be buried alive.
