Inside the ancient rooms of the spooky derelict pub, dating back to 1636, people have seen wandering spirits: a Roundhead soldier, a broken-hearted damsel called Emily, a spirit-like young girl dressed in tatty clothes, and a drunk ghost called Charlie who is believed to cause mischief at the inn. Other paranormal incidents recently reported include glasses flying off the shelves, a piano playing by itself, and spooky footsteps. Outside, a black-clad man been spotted looking forlornly at the pub.
The inn, classed as one of the most haunted places in Britain, is up for sale at £325,000 ($526.800). It boasts a bar and a restaurant, kitchen, stores and cellar. On the first and second floors are 10 bedrooms. Outside, beside the beer garden, the car park can hold 80 cars.
Leaving aside the question of whether spirits cling to buildings, I think the property will be too expensive to renovate. The structure will probably be pulled down to make way for housing. Space is at a premium here on England's overcrowded island and we don't want to encroach on our green belt.
But what would happen to any supposed ghosts without their habitat? Would they hang around the area, too confused to move on?
