The Haunted Knife and Cleaver
The Grove, Houghton Conquest MK45 3LA
In the village of Houghton Conquest along the Grove and opposite the church you’ll find the 17th century Knife and Cleaver pub.
Now the Knife and Cleaver has a reputation for being haunted by both a male and female ghost.
The most infamous paranormal story to come out of the pub was when a young barman got the shock of his life when he witnessed the pages of the booking dairy turn over on their own accord.
And then to cap things off… he saw a ghostly hand appear over his shoulder!
It’s said that the most paranormally active rooms of the Knife and Cleaver are the attic, the kitchen and the bar.
Terrified witnesses have even reported seeing ghostly shadowy figures behind and around the bar area.
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.
