Mysterious Alnwick

For those who don't know, the town of Alnwick in Northumberland is the site of the second largest inhabited castle in the country.  Alnwick Castle is the home of the Percy family, the dukes of Northumberland. Part of Alnwick Castle is open to the public and the castle was used as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films.

It is said that many horrors lurk beneath the streets of Alnwick.  Within its boundary there are numerous plague pits and beneath the town itself, a warren of underground passages of which some lead to the castle and others to strange rooms.  Odd 'creatures' are thought to live in some of these passages and are deemed to be so dangerous that Enochian magick seals are needed to keep them from getting out. Some accounts suggest former family members were responsible for instigating the mysterious subterranean happenings.
