From the Thatch pub’s wine-spilling poltergeist to Warwick Castle’s celebrity ghost... A few spooky tales to get you in the Halloween mood





As All Hallows’ Evening is upon us, it’s time to snuggle down for some spooky spine-tingling tales. Simon Woodings heads to his local to find out about the glass-menacing spectres there, while Gill Sutherland finds more than just bats in the belfry at Warwick Castle.

Most haunted 1: The Thatch

One pub in Stratford can claim to be the most-haunted in the district. With four ghosts, a glass-smashing poltergeist and a mysterious weeping girl in the toilet, it’s the sort of place that might turn you to drink.

The Old Thatch Tavern is a beamed building with flagstone floor and dates back to 1470. It has a log fire, leaded windows and a cosy feel which attracts visitors from all over the world.
