  • There are Photographs of apparitions in the act of haunting are rare. However, one has actually appeared in an image taken at this village pub. It is a 17th century building, with stands near the one thousand years old Howden Minster. The shape of a ghost was photographed by a local journalist. The image shows what appears to be part of the left shoulder and arm of a white clad person. This indicates the ghost could have been a Cistercian monk at Howden Minster. They were called ‘White Monks’ because they wore white habits, over which a black scapular was worn. A scapular was a monastic short coat covering the shoulders.
