Robert King Ghost Walk

Report by Mike Davies

Robert King local historian and author

Local historian and author Robert King along with 22 students and 5 lecturers from Neath Port Talbot College and Cardiff College began the ghostly trail in Victoria Gardens finishing up in Water Street.

Talks were given at Queen Street on the angel with a purpose; M&S on Queen Street with its foundations built on a graveyard of children; The Market Tavern and the haunted Castle Hotel on Croft Road with many a ghostly sighting, particularly the young pregnant chambermaid who  hung herself facing the prospect of having a child alone out of wedlock.

But perhaps the most interesting was The Duke of Wellington Pub on Old Market Street which is known to be haunted by the ‘Captain’. Robert  goes on to mention “there is a definite atmosphere in the pub”. The ‘Captain’ has also been known to be violent to its patrons, causing injury.
