Boverton, Vale of Glamorgan
Boverton lies just outside Llantwit Major in the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales. The village sits on the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, which runs from Aberthaw to Porthcawl, and is in easy reach of Cardiff, Wales' capital city. The area is renowned for its countryside walks, fishing and places of historical interest. The Vale of Glamorgan Heritage Trail passes through Boverton and it is a short walk to Stout Bay, Penry Bay and the wide pebble beach at Limbert Bay, great for rock pooling and crabbing. The Seawatch Centre at Summerhouse Point is a mere 1 mile walk from the village.
Boverton is renowned for being the location of one of Britain's most haunted places, Boverton Castle.
It was built circa 1587 by Roger Seys who was a land owner and attorney general in Wales. By the late 17th century the Seys family left the castle and it fell into disrepair, but in the early 19th century it underwent restoration. At this time, men working on the castle said they saw the shadowy figure of a tall woman in black clothes wandering about the place. The woman, most commonly known as the Black Lady, has been seen on many occasions since and is believed to be Wissi, the wife of King John, who starved her to death.
