The Graveyard nearby holds some dark and sinister secrets as does the bar where spirits have been seen on many occasions and not the drinking kind.
The paranormal activity witnessed in this pub is spectacular. Glasses have been seen flying across the bar, cackling laughter has been heard from empty rooms and extreme drops in temperature are not uncommon. People have reported menacing shadows, the heavy thump of feet from the upper floors and some have felt such extreme fear here that they have fled and vowed never to return. An overnight ghost hunt at The Skirrid Inn is a daunting experience and the sinister feelings experienced in the main bedroom have terrified many hardened ghost hunt veterans. Slammed doors, loud footsteps and even hushed voices await you on your ghost hunts here are you brave enough to enter and discover its secrets?
What will you experience as you embark upon a ghost hunt at The Skirrid Inn?
First mentioned on record in 1110, the historic Skirrid Inn is now over 900 years old and claims to be the oldest pub in Great Britain and its history includes that of both Welsh and English Kings who would have used the ancient 'mounting stone' which still sits in the forecourt to this day. It is alleged to be the place where Welsh rebel Owain Glyndwr called together his troops in the 14th Century and where Judge Jeffries (the hanging judge) began his illustrious career of execution.
There is a beam in the Skirrid Inn which still bears the rope marks of the hangings carried out in the Inn and there is also the hallmark of a courtroom on the first floor and of a cell where the condemned man may have spent his last night before facing his agonising death the following morning.
