  • This curiously named pub was previously called the Seven Stars. Many years ago, when it was due to be repainted, the proprietor was asked what colour scheme he would like. In a brusque, North Country way he said, ‘Aye, same yet’, meaning ‘same as it is now’. It is an early Victorian style building, solid looking, with cream coloured structure with grey corner stones. The Same Yet exhibits ghostly manifestations. these include the ghost of a man called James Heyward who was robbed and murdered nearby in 1843. His body was carried to the pub for the police to investigate. Every now and again, there is no time limit, his bearded ghost appears in the bars and quite startle all who witness him.
