The Haunted Sun Inn
High Street, Dedham, Colchester CO7 6DF
In the High Street of Dedham there’s a splendid old 15th century coaching inn called the Sun Inn.
As with most old coaching inns in England it has a ghostly tale to tell!
Legend says that centuries ago a local girl called Elsa once worked at the Sun Inn…
And she was accused of witchcraft and executed!
It’s said that she was the last woman in Essex to be executed under the Witchcraft Act.
Her weeping ghostly apparition has been seen throughout the Sun Inn by frightened witnesses.
Her spirit has also been reported to walk along the corridors of the coaching inn in the wee hours of the night.
In 2002, two startled witnesses saw Elsa walking past the pub dressed in a dark cape and carrying a bundle…
Some say that when Elsa appears it’s a sign that a disaster is about to happen!
