The Haunting of the Packhorse Inn
At the turning for Kensworth on the A5 you’ll find the Grade II listed Packhorse Inn.
The 18th century pub is said to be situated on the ancient route of Watling Street.
Some also say that the Packhorse stands on the site of an old Roman tavern.
The pub is said to be haunted by people who tragically died in road traffic accidents along the A5.
There’s a ghost of a woman who’s said to have had a car crash near to the pub and two men who died in a minibus accident.
In the 1950s a cricket team were driving along the A5 in a minibus when it suddenly had a head-on crash with an oncoming car whilst it was overtaking another vehicle.
Two men died in that accident.
Since that tragic day a taxi driver and many other witnesses have seen the ghostly apparition a very tall man dressed in cricket whites standing outside the pub!
