An Additional ghostly note about The Old Hall Inn

In May, 1975 and October 1976, a team of researchers from the Borderline Science Investigation Group made serious attempts to obtain facts regarding the alleged haunting of this 400 year old building, formerly a farmhouse. They spent many hours recording some interesting material, using sophisticated detecting apparatus and arrived at the conclusion that genuine phenomena had probably occurred.

There was no real evidence that the ghost was of Maria Cubitt, as was originally claimed, but 'impressive' information did suggest that the phantom was a 'Lily Taylor'. On separate occasions the figure of a woman in grey clothing has been seen sitting on a window ledge in the television lounge and an accompanying drop in temperature recorded.

Other phenomena has been sudden and inexplicable appearances of a 'bluish shadow and 'the sweet, sickly smell of strong tobacco'. At 11 o'clock one morning, the manager's wife at the time saw a 'column of grey smoke move across the dining room towards the kitchen. This was observed on two later occasions by other witnesses.

However, you will be pleased to know that Barbara & Eddie have not experienced any phenomena . . . . YET.
