Haunted: The New Inn, Gloucester, Gloucestershire

The Haunted New Inn

16 Northgate Street, Gloucester GL1 1SF

Off Northgate Street in the centre of the county town of Gloucester you’ll find the New Inn.

This splendid Grade I listed medieval courtyard inn dates back to 1455.

It was built as a hostelry for pilgrims by John Twyning who was a monk from the Benedictine Abbey of St Peter.

In 1553, Lady Jane Grey was a guest at the inn when the announcement of her succession to the British throne was made from the Inn gallery.

The New Inn became infamous in 2010 when the CCTV system recorded a pint of beer lift off a table and fall onto the floor on its own accord.

This paranormal event happened during a pub quiz night with many startled witnesses!

Apparently, paranormal activity started to occur at the inn when new managers arrived…

Their young daughter had seen and spoken with a spirit of a young girl.

Phantom footsteps, rattling doors, TVs turning off on their own accord and severe temperature drops are just some of the paranormal activities to be reported by both members of staff and guests alike since the new managers arrived.

Before these events, the building did have a reputation with the locals for being haunted by the ghosts of children who once died in a tragic fire at the site!
