Bridge St, Worksop, Nottinghamshire

  • Many years ago, there were tunnels from this building when it was a private house to a local monastery. It may have been that these were used as escape routes for religious adherents hiding from their tormentors. That indicates there may well be a secret priest hole still hidden away at the Unicorn. A number of people, including a priest, were in the tunnel one night when it collapsed. A fire ripped through, possibly from the flames of the lanterns and a build-up of gases, with all perished. Every now and then, there is a strong. However, unexplained, smell of burning throughout the pub. At the same time, the ghost of a black suited cleric in a round hat appears, surrounded by several black and shifting shapes.
