  • At this most gorgeous of thatched 16th century inn, the phantoms show a penchant for fighting each other. One appears to be a monk in a black habit. The other a man dressed in a grey 17th century style of suit. In the kitchen, a phantom woman, witnesses have seen, many times from outside through the window. She appears to be working at a table. However, when anyone enters, she looks up, smiles, and disappears. This pub has external timber beams set into the mellow red brickwork. It seems to have twisted as a building over the years. It is what Charles Dickens describes as of a ‘dropsical’ nature’ when describing an old pub in London. Slapton is an ancient village. Locals knew it in Old English as Slapestone in 1086, a muddy farmstead.
