The Crow's Nest

Four ghosts are said to "inhabit" this inn. The first is a lady who was heartbroken when her love failed to return from the mine. The second is an old woman who returns for a late night "tipple". The third is an old man who walks through the bar and into the outside portion of the pub. The fourth is said to manifest as footsteps upstairs when no-one is there. Another possible spectre is a woman of medium height with grey hair and clothing of mid 19th century style walking through the dining room and out of a window where a door used to be (interestingly, only one member of a group of about eight saw this figure) - this ghost may be the "old woman" referred to above? Another sighting is of a boy wandering through the pub. On a few occasions, a column of "smoke", composed of tiny grains of sand was seen swirling below a light near the entrance to the bar. A row of broken glass, from smashed pint glasses, was found at the back of a glass shelf without anything else being damaged. A dark shadow and footsteps on a spiral staircase have also occurred.

Update: 27/7/20 Dan Evans, the landlord said that, "We could provide witness accounts of Paranormal activity [if you visited] from when we moved in and locals have stories from before we arrived too." However, when asked for email anecdotes, none were forthcoming.
