|River Ogmore & Castle Ruins|
Barbara, not wanting to reveal the theft to the family by sharing the wealth at this late date, decided to throw the money into the river, thinking that this would allow her to keep the respect of the family. However, it seems that she had more trickery in mind and did not throw it downstream as she had agreed, but upstream. I don't know why she threw it upstream, but it suggests to me that the was trying to trick the ghost and would set about retrieving it later. But the ghost was obviously not stupid and this didn't work for the hapless Barbara and threw her into a deep whirlpool in the river. She was found later by some villagers battered and bruised, but with no memory of what had happened.
The ghost returned again and haunted the home that she shared with her innocent husband and children with ghostly bumps and crashes for the rest of their days. The story goes that even her children were punished. Locals were said to be "ghost ridden"
