It is alleged that the spirit of ''Betty Radcliffe haunts the room and when she is about to appear people can see fingerprints on the inside of the glass frame. Betty Radcliffe was the owner of the coaching inn in 1564. She is alleged to have thrown herself from the window to the cobbles below after being jilted by her lover. However, another story tells Betty was murdered by her lover then thrown from the window. Two psychics in the group actually made contact with a lady but this was not Betty. She was a lady named Mary. Mary told the psychics she had been murdered in the room by HER lover but that she had been strangled and left on the bed. Several photos were taken and, in one pic show a light source emanating from the ceiling while the light, which can be seen in the photo, was out. Below the light source is an enormous orb or energy ball. Ectoplasm travels down past a psychic and disappears. In another photo two psychics are 'talking' to the lady and there is a orb on the wall behind them.

The alarm sounded and the needle disappeared off the screen. Next to Betty's grave is one of Sir Charles Sword. Photographs were taken and show, behind the grave of sir Charles the Hilt of a sword. There was nothing to be seen by the investigators but the photo had picked up the hilt. Conclusion. Whilst the evidence indicates room 12 of the Bell Hotel IS haunted, it is not by the spirit of Betty Radcliffe.

The area in which Charlie would be seen was a weapons storage area which was bordered on the east side by what we referred to as 'The Queen's Woods'. Often British 'Ghost' societies would go out at night in the woods on 'Ghost Hunts' and we were advised of this. However, there was an old metal guard tower in the Northeast corner of the weapons area where a guard would always be posted. Anyone coming up the stairs to the tower would be heard as the stairs creaked". A guard looked up at a tower window and saw Charlie looking in on him. He jumped up, grabbed his M-16 and kicked open the heavy iron door. Charlie was already on the ground (15 feet below) running to the Southeast corner. He called a response team. When they got there, Charlie was running into the woods (which was on the other side of two alarmed fences, covered with concertina wire).

He was said to tidy the kitchen after all other servants had gone to bed, so they started to leave the kitchen spotless, to which he would just rearrange it. He would also torture the cats by tieing their tails together. There is also a curse to Hylton Castle:
"Woe woe to Hylton line, Woe be yours forever more, Ne'er in warfare shall you shine, But oft in murderspill your gore. Fallen strangers take your lands, You'll be strangers o'er the sea, For with blood you've stained your hands, Now with peace and wealth shall flee. Hylton's line dishonored falls, Your course of crime the should appalls, Your strong walls shall broken lie, From their deep holes the owlets cry, Ghosts and harpies walk your grounds, Making dismal cries and sounds. Now the house inglorious falls; Strike to earth her ancient walls; Brave the heart that now shall dare, Make his habitation there. Ghosts and goblins dance around, peace no more shall there abound."
