The Haunted Hind Hotel
38 Sheep Street, Wellingborough NN8 1BY
Along Sheep Street in the market town of Wellingborough you’ll find the Hind Hotel.
The historic Grade II listed Hind Hotel dates back to the 17th century when it started life out as a coaching inn.
The hotel has a reputation for being haunted…
Oliver Cromwell was said to have stayed at the hotel before the battle of Naseby in 1645.
And together with Sir Thomas Fairfax he planned the battle actually in the Hind itself!
It’s said that a serving maid was found spying on Cromwell and his generals whilst they were planning the battle.
Later she was found dead and it’s now said that her ghost haunts the building.
Poltergeist activity and phantom footsteps have been reported to take place at the Hind Hotel by terrified witnesses.
In the 1970s, the building was being renovated and this seemed to have upset the residential ghosts…
The Hind’s manager would get all sorts of objects thrown at him by an unseen force.
One day he had a bottle of soft drink thrown at his head which actually hit him resulting in him being totally drench with orange juice.
Two ghostly apparition of ladies dressed in white have also been witnessed in the hotel.
One is said to walk the corridors knocking on doors and the other is said to be a Victorian lady.
The ghost of a soldier, a monk, a drunkard and small children are also said to haunt the hotel.
And you know what…
Some even say that the ghost of Oliver Cromwell himself haunts the hotel too!Click Here to Stay in the Hind Hotel
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon
To the rear of the Black Boy there was once a convent which probably accounts for the many sightings of a ghostly nun seen walking through the building.
Many guests have heard the sound of a phantom child crying in one of the inn’s bedrooms.
Apparently, if you ask whether the child is OK it stops crying!
Members of staff and punters alike have reported seeing a ghostly figure of a man sitting in the bar area of the pub just watching people.
And a senior member of staff was certain they saw a ghostly apparition of a woman in the bar area when they were working late one night.
