Ghostly

It was at Nottingham Castle that the young King Edward III trapped his mother, Queen Isabella, with her lover, Martin Mortimer, and created the legend of Mortimer’s hole. This was said to be a cave leading from the cellars of Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem Inn to the castle, through which Edward III is reputed to have crept to capture Mortimer, who was later put to death. Mortimer’s ghost is reputed to haunt the cave.IMG_3907
