Richard Hammond buys haunted Herefordshire castle
Richard Hammond has bought a castle in Herefordshire. Hammond and his family may not be the only occupants of his new home; the 18th century castle is said to be haunted by its first owner.


Top Gear star Hammond paid £2m for his Herefordshire castle, according to HELLO! magazine. The luxury castle is set in 20 acres and has six bedrooms.

Hammond, wife Mindy and their two daughters will be moving from their home in Gloucestershire to the "sprawling" property, which has an indoor pool, stables and extensive outbuildings.

However, the family may not be alone; it is said that the castle is haunted by the ghost of its first owner, an English man who died heartbroken after being jilted by his Spanish lover.
