|Where to Dig?|
According to legend, in the 1600s the ownership of Leap Castle passed on to the Darby family. Actually an O'Carroll daughter fell in love with a Darby and married him. That's a huge change in the family pattern, isn't it? Love. Marriage. Not hate and murder.
Anyway, during the English Civil War, one of the Darby's buried a considerable treasure somewhere on the grounds. Can you guess what happened to the two servants who helped him? Yep. Two more ghosts--probably grumpy ones--joined the cast of many others.
The story is that no one has found the treasure yet.
Next week: the story of the Elemental Spirit of Leap Castle. Brrrrr!
