W.A.S.P.S will return to The Ancient Ram Inn in 2017 after an interesting investigation previously.
Located in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, The Inn was built in 1145 and is possibly the oldest Inn in England. Its original function was that of a keeping house for slaves and workers who helped to build the local church. Many rumours and tales have circulated over the years including the superstitious theory that the Inn sits on an intersection of spiritual Ley Lines providing the energy for the Inn’s many ghost stories. It is also rumoured the ground beneath is a 5000 year old pagan burial site!
The current owner, John Humphries, has fought hard to keep the Inn standing today and has many tales of the buildings ghostly occupants!
One of the rooms inside ‘The witch’s room’ is so called because a local woman is said to have hidden there just before being burned on the stake for witchcraft in the 1500’s, her spirit is still supposed to frequent the inn.
Evidence of devil worship and ritual sacrifice have been reported on site by John and his first night at the inn was disturbed when he was dragged from his bed by a brutal force!
The spirit of an oppressive monk is said to haunt the Bishop’s room and many guests have fled mid stay back when the building was still a functioning B&B!
Roman Centurions, shape shifting creatures and even a succubus, a demonic energy said to interfere with its victims, have been reported at the Inn.
