Lowther Castle

Lowther Castle, in Westmoreland, was once home to the first Earl of Lonsdale, sir James Lowther. This man became better known as 'wicked Jimmy', for he was both cruel and miserly.

Lowther Castle
One day, Lowther's young lover became gravely ill and medics broke the news that she would soon die. When she finally passed away, the Earl could not bring himself to accept her death, and kept her rotting body in his castle, treating it as if it still had life within it. After many weeks, he reluctantly accepted the fact that this lifeless corpse should be cremated. The Earl was so furious that death had got the better of him that when he himself died, his spirit leapt from its coffin and attempted to strangle the funeral congregation.

Wicked Jimmy's ghost has been seen driving a coach and horses through the countryside. He has a frenzied manner about him as he whips the phantom horses, urging them to gallop faster and faster.
