The Hauntings of Blue Boar Row
Blue Boar Row is located in the centre of Salisbury.
It’s named after the Blue Boar Inn which was demolished in 1756.
In 1483, the Blue Boar Inn was the site where Henry Stafford, the Duke of Buckingham was executed after a failed coup attempt against Richard III.
Today, the site is occupied by a building which houses a well-known department store but the old Blue Boar courtyard, where the Duke of Buckingham was executed, still exists in the form of an open space.
This area is said to be haunted by his ghost.
Paranormal activity has also been reported in the department store building.
In 2002, doors were flung wide open and security alarms set off by something unknown.
During the Second World War, fire-watchers refused to go in the building.
And recently, a telephone engineer felt somebody touch him on the shoulder whist he was working alone in the attic room of the building.
The street in front of the department building is said to be haunted by the ghost of a happy Victorian girl who’s been seen skipping there.
The building on the corner of Blue Boar Row and Endless Street is said to be haunted by a ghostly teenage girl called Matilda who sadly died from diphtheria.
Between this building and the department store there’s a shop that’s said to be haunted by a woman in an Edwardian dress.
