The Fleece Inn

The Fleece Inn (pictured above) is a wonderful half-timbered building that is over six hundred years old> It has been a pub since 1848, and is now owned by the National Trust.


It is reputedly haunted by the ghost of Lola Taplin, the landlady who passed away in 1977. The apparition of an elderly lady has sometimes been reported sitting in a rocking chair. There have been reports of objects being thrown and footsteps heard, all of which have been attributed to Lola.


There are also a number of "witches marks" inscribed on the hearths of the fireplaces.
