Medieval Merchants House

The most recent phenomena reported here include lights dimming in the cellar and a chill descending upon the house during refurbishment work. There are also talkes of people feeling pushed from behind and candles in the cellar blowing themselves out. A "shadowy woman" has been seen walking around the corridors; she has also been observed staring "longingly" down the well, as if looking for something. It is believed by some that she was a woman named Ruth Dill who used to work here in the 1890s where she acquired extra income by sleeping with sailors who stayed here. Finally, she tried to rob a wealthy sailor but when she was caught pilfering his jewelry, she struck him with a fire iron, killing him immediately. Ruth escaped, throwing the stolen jewelery down the well.
