  • A 17th century coaching inn, the Nag’s Head had an ancient sealed room that reports revealed in the 1980s. Since then, there have been reports of heavy breathing, with several people have seen a man in a long cloak or shroud appearing through a wall. Poltergeists have been active with loud poundings in the night. Three people have committed suicide at the Nag’s Head in the past, with are the ghosts that haunt the building. They have been recorded as a coachman who hanged himself; a woman who threw herself out of one of the windows; and a soldier on leave who shot himself. There is also the portrait of a strange person painted on the inside of a pub cupboard. This portraReports claim it to metamorphose into one of the ghosts to haunt the Nag’s Head late at night. The inn has history over five hundred years, with prior to that had been a church. There is a jetted, medieval, half-timbered building at the rear of this pub. It has a history from 1420. It appears to have once been part of the pub.
