Haunted Places

RESIDENCE – ANCIENT RAM INN

Location: Potters Pond, Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire GL12 7HF

Small Description: The Ancient Ram Inn is a Grade II listed building, originally built in 1145. It is built on the site of an ancient burial ground (5 thousand years ago) and it is also believed that devil worship and child sacrifices took place here.

Originally the Inn was built by St Mary’s Church and was used to house slaves and workers who were building the church.  In 1930 the Inn was purchased by Maurice de Bathe and changed ownership several times until John Humphries bought the property in 1968. He lives there to this day.

The Bishops Room

Ghost Story: Being one of Englands most haunted places, it is said that there are up to 20 ghosts who haunt the Ram Inn. The ghosts include:  Monks and priests, a cavalier, cats, dogs, demons, children and previous landlords. They have caused even the bravest of people to leave hurriedly in the middle of the night, some even jumping out of windows to get away (luckily only from the ground floor windows)! John Humphries (the owner) carries a bible with him as he moves about the house.

The Bishop’s Room is by far the most haunted. There is a very dark energy in this room; some say it’s the most haunted room in the world! There have been sighting of two monks, standing shimmering in the corner. A shepherd and his sheep dog have been seen at the door. There is a cavalier who sits at the dressing table and walks purposefully across the room.

Eight people who have slept in this room have had to be exorcised. The former Bishop of Gloucester, the Rt Rev John Yates attempted to exorcise this room and was unsuccessful saying it was ‘the most evil place I have ever had the misfortune to visit.’

In the attic above the Bishops Room, the Inn Keepers daughter was murdered in the 1500’s.  People have heard a slow, heavy sound like someone being dragged across the floor. There have been many photographs taken in the attic showing strange mists and orbs.

The Witch’s Room is haunted by a local townswoman, who was burned at the stake with her black cat.  There have been sightings of the ‘witch’ sitting by the bed while a small girl waves from the outside window.

There are two lustful demons: Incubus (male demon or evil spirit who visits women in their sleep) and Succubus (a female demon or who some might refer to as an Evil Spirit who attack men while they sleep) who reside at the property too.  They are known to visit people as they sleep.  On John Humphries first night at the property back in 1968, he was pulled out of bed.  He has had many visits over the years from the Succubus.  This would definitely make me sleep with one eye open!

The Bishops Room Chimney
GA-Bonus-Spook

Bonus Spook: After opening the chimney in the Bishop’s room that hadn’t been used in over 200 years, there were many artefacts found in small crevices and hidden behind stones in the wall. These artefacts were linked to devil worship and black magic.  One of which was a small iron horseshoe set on a round piece of wood.  This was about the size of a goats hoof. We all know what animal the devil is known to look like.
