Around 20 miles to the south-west of Scafell Pike is Muncaster Castle – allegedly the most haunted castle in the United Kingdom. Amongst its non-paying residents are “Tom Fool” – a seventeenth century castle jester who used to direct travellers asking for directions into a quicksand bog – and “Mary Bragg” , a Muncaster housemaid who was murdered in a love triangle and her body dumped into the River Esk.
A headless carpenter – killed by Tom Fool – and Henry IV are also claimed to roam the corridors of Muncaster Castle, and visitors sleeping in the Tapestry Room have reported clearly hearing the weeping of a young child and dark figures entering and leaving the room – without using the door!
Bed and Breakfast or self-catering packages are available at this haunted habitation.

The Bridge Inn is situated at Santon Bridge in Wasdale, and is famous for hosting “The Biggest Liar in the World” competition each November. The competition is held in honour of Will Ritson, 1808-1890 who claimed that Scafell Pike had been created by large moles and eels and contained turnips that were so big that the dalesfolk quarried into them for their Sunday lunch and then used the shells as sheds for their sheep.
Politicians and lawyers are barred from entering to keep the competition fair (this is not a lie!), and the event attracts people from all over the world and all walks of life, with one of the most recent winners being the Bishop of Carlisle (this is not a lie either!).
