The Haunting of the Lambs Inn
Back in 1757, a murderer called Timothy Hardy was hanged at the city castle for killing John Aggas his brother-in-law and landlord of the Lambs Inn.
One day at the pub Timothy was arguing with his wife and John tried to calm the situation by intervening.
Unfortunately for him, Timothy pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the stomach…
John sadly died the next morning from his wounds!
Hardy was hung for the murder and his body dissected.
It’s now said that John Aggas haunts his beloved pub…
Countless landlords have reported hearing phantom footsteps walking around the property late at night.
And some have even seen the ghostly apparition of an old man sitting in one of the pub’s chairs.
The landlord’s children have also reported being woken up in the middle of the night by a kind old man who then reads them stories!
