The Haunting of the Swan

The Swan in Brentwood High Street is said to be haunted by the ghost of a 19 year old lad called William Hunter…

In 1555, he was held there for two days before he was executed for his Protestant beliefs.

He was burnt at the stake!

Water taps being turned off and on by an unknown entity, doors being mysteriously unlocked and items being hidden are just some of the paranormal activity which takes place within the Swan pub.

It’s said that dogs entering the pub tend to get a little spooked too.

In 1963 the landlord’s daughter got freaked out when she saw a ghostly apparition of a man in a hat follow her mother across the landing.

A few years later a terrified daughter of another landlord refused to sleep in the pub anymore after witnessing paranormal events in the night.
