The Historic Ludlow Ghostwalk
 
Blondie Jack

Jack Blondell, of Shrewsbury once lived within the Castles precincts. He married six women in succession. Each of the first five, when he grew tired of her and wanted a change, disappeared from view and was never seen again.

The sixth wife became concerned about what happened to the fifth, which had been her sister. She mentioned her suspicions to an alert watchman. He took the complaint seriously, and during his search of Blondells hovel he came across a cupboard full of rotting human remains.

Bold Jack was taken into custody and confessed to his nefarious activities. He expiated his sins by swinging from a gibbet at Old Heath.

It is not widely known that his ghost and possibly those of his hapless wives as well, haunts the Castle to this very day..
