The ghost of "Emma" (real name Martha Railton) has been encountered here. In 1713 she fell in love with a local teenager, Roger Wrightson, but their respective parents were bitter rivals, running separate inns. The lovers had to meet in secret but after one meeting on the moorland Roger contracted a serious fever and a few days later his parents agreed that he should see Martha, but her parents disagreed. Roger died of his ailment and Martha died heartbroken immediately afterwards. The parents agreed that they should be buried together. Some reports say that her loved one has also appeared. On a recent occasion, a guest to the inn when to complain about the noise of a late night party but when he entered the room, the sound stopped - and he noticed a girl in a green party dress in the middle of the room who vanished moments later. A dark hair man has been seen next to the fireplace, a man in a bowler hat has been observed in various parts of the pub, as has a lady in a grey Victorian dress and in the cellar, a boy of about 12 years old has been experienced in the cellar; he was thrown here as punishment and never allowed to leave. A strange shimmering cloud of darkness was also seen in the mirror in the dining room. People also report the sensation of being touched and pushed, and of hearing strange noises in the night.
