The Hauntings at the Lollards Pit
If you thought that a pub being situated on the site of an old leper house was bad enough…
Then you’ll probably find that a pub being located on an execution spot quite shocking!
The Lollards Pit pub on Riverside Road is located on a spot where 15th and 16th century heretics where burnt to death.
The Lollards were individuals who called for the reform of the Catholic Church.
And for their beliefs they were burnt to death in an old disused chalk pit…
Hence the pub’s name!
It’s now said that eerie ghostly screams are heard in the pub late at night.
And terrified witnesses have seen ghostly black figures in the pub’s corridor.
On one occasion, a shocking apparition of a woman engulfed in flames was seen before she quickly vanished into thin air!
