Event of the Week

Join the Event of the Week – The Devils Within the Ancient Ram Inn! The Ancient Ram Inn dates back to the 14th Century, but the land where it sits is on a Pagan Burial ground. Pagans were ritualistic and they would bury their dead in mass graves. It is believed that the energies from all of the bodies in a mass together would cause chaos in any location, and the Ancient Ram Inn is no exception; the atmosphere inside is said to be demonic. The present owner John Humphries moved into the property in 1968. At the time he didn’t know it was haunted until his very first night. Whilst in bed, in the middle of the night he was disturbed by the bed sheets being pulled and by what he described as a forceful hand grabbing hold of him and pulling him out of bed onto the floor. It absolutely terrified him! The Devils Within the Ancient Ram Inn Event will be held on Saturday, April 18th!
