History of Conwy Castle
Pat explores the history Conwy Castle. Edward the 1st build this amazing castle and surrounded the entire town with a protective castle wall. Over the years it has fallen into disrepair several times, but eventually it gets refurbished. Over 180,000 people visit each year.
Pat and Rebecca debate the paranormal evidence. Visitors claim to see floating monks, soldiers and dark figures in the windows, smell incense (when none is burning), and hear voices. Listen and make your own choice.
