Inn Ghosts, Folklore and Forteana

Snickleway Inn, York

Little Girl

Location: York (Yorkshire) - Snickleway Inn, Goodramgate (was the Angler's Arms public house)
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Unknown
Further Comments: Seen as she waits on the staircase, this entity is said to radiate peace and love. She met her death when a horse and cart delivering beer ran her over just outside the pub. The ghostly presence reported down in the basement is much more sinister and has been called evil by previous landlords. Finally, a phantom cat may rub itself against the legs of visitors.

The Olde Starr Inn, York


Location: York (Yorkshire) - The Olde Starr Inn, Stonegate
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Unknown
Further Comments: Another building which once housed injured Civil War troops, the basement is said to be the place where amputations occurred, which explains the sound of cries and screams. Two black cats are also reported to haunt the pub, and an old woman has been seen on the stairs.

Black Swan Inn, York


Location: York (Yorkshire) - Black Swan Inn
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Unknown
Further Comments: Seen descending a staircase in the building, only the lower part of this male body appears. Two other spirits can be found in the bar area; that of a workman wearing a bowler hat (dressed in Victorian clothing) and a lady in a white dress who watches the fireplace.

Cock and Bottle Inn, York

Man with Big Nose

Location: York (Yorkshire) - Cock and Bottle Inn, Skeldergate
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Twentieth century
Further Comments: Thought to be the Royalist and alchemist George Villiers, Second Duke of Buckingham, this ghostly figure, with black wavy hair and a large nose, has been spotted in the public house. The building was built on the top of a site once owned by Villiers, which would explain his reluctance to leave.
