Bate Hall

A rarely seen phantom lady in a long grey dress is the main resident spectre; other ghosts include an "evil character" called Richard, dark shadowy figures and a youngster named "Billy" who plays with children. Doors open and close of their own accord and strange marking appear and disappear on the upper floor. In one notable occasion, a cellarman found himself locked in the kitchen when the pub was unoccupied. There are also stories of customers feeling as if they've been tapped or touched, and glasses "flying" off the shelves. It is said that much of the activity occurs in the cellar or in the upper living area.
