The Keep is one of the few intact Norman Keeps in Great Britain and at over 900 years old is the oldest part of Appleby Castle.

The Castle has a rich and varied history. It has been held by the Kings of Scotland and England. Perhaps it’s most famous resident was Lady Anne Clifford who did much for the Castle and surrounding area.

So you have seen all the paranormal shows on TV. Well now is your chance to become an investigator. We pride ourselves on our scientific research and we are a gadget friendly group although we also like to use old school original methods of contacting spirits which include Talk boards, table tipping and human pendulum. Although we do enjoy our gadgets, we are big believers that the best tool for the night is yourself. Open up all your senses. Nothing is faked and we can’t make the spirits perform– what you see is what you get! A real, paranormal investigation. What will you uncover when the lights go out? Only the brave will dare!!

A true Romany gypsy psychic in attendance. Added fee payable on the night to her.

    This is the first time I’ve been on an investigation with Lone Vigils, and it won’t be the last. I found everyone very friendly and knowledgeable in their subject. The team had all the equipment needed and there was plenty to go around the group to try out for ourselves. Appleby Castle is a beautiful building steeped in history so it was no surprise we had activity from the start. I found the Castle has a warm calmness about it even in the keep and dungeon, where we had a lot of activity and the temperatures were at its lowest. If this is your “thing” I highly recommend Lone Vigils.

    First time at a paranormal night ,what a brilliant night run by Chris & his team , Appleby Castle has always interested me so to have some experience of activity was amazing especially up in the guards tower where my niece felt a single tear roll down her eye yet her eyes weren’t watering or nothing , from activity on the ouji board to furniture moving in the great hall I now can’t wait to book my next one

    I went to appleby Castle last night not really knowing what to expect, wow what a night with so many different things happening from the start, the team were absolutely amazing from start to finish big shout out to Steve who I jumped on when I got whistled at right down my ear, as for the tear for no reason🤔 ..I can not explain the feeling you get when you connect with a spirit to try and learn their story through them, with the help of all the devices you need and a amazing team leading you. thank you so much I can not wait till my next one xxx

    What a fab weekend! 2 Investigations with the team Friday we were at Appleby Castle although it was calm and warm we managed to get plenty of activity from calling out and using our own senses, plenty of knocking, tapping and unexplained noises after a break the teams split up went in different directions on one occasion we had a Penelope come through on ouija board, in the dungeons (massive 🕷 in there)lots of noises with 2guests experiencing while holding hands arms were pulled backwards and forwards in response to questions we were asking, will definitely return here as there is lots more to unfold!
