'TOP GEAR' STAR RICHARD SPLASHES OUT ON STUNNING HEREFORDSHIRE CASTLE

14 AUGUST 2008


Small screen star Richard Hammond certainly won't have to worry about where to park his car collection once he's moved into his new home. The Top Gear favourite has splashed out on an expansive £2 million castle in Herefordshire.

Set in 20 acres of land, the luxury six-bedroom pad comes with an indoor pool, stables, and extensive outbuildings - perfect for family life with his wife Mindy and their two daughters.

Richard's new home was constructed in the 18th Century, and is said to be haunted by the ghost of its first owner - an English man who died heartbroken after being jilted by his Spanish love.
