With a paranormal-fueling past reaching back nearly 900 years, the Ancient Ram Inn’s history is dark and gritty, making the bed and breakfast (motel) one of the most haunted places in the world.
Unlike the majority of haunted buildings around the world, the ghosts of the Ancient Ram Inn are far more sinister and malicious to anyone foolish enough to meddle with them. Now owned by John Humphries, the Ancient Ram Inn serves as a bed & breakfast accommodation.
Originally built in 1145 on the intersection of two Ley lines, which are said to be a point of high spiritual energy, the Ancient Ram Inn also served as a priest‘s house. Prior to the property’s development, the land was a pagan burial ground.
Legend claims that Stonehenge feeds energy to the Inn through the Ley lines which provide the energy the dark entities need to feed on. That’s a pretty good foundation for haunting, but that’s only the beginning.
Following that, it served as a priest’s house and then a brewery, but in 1968 it poured its last pint. It was purchased by the late John Humphries shortly after and acted as a bed & breakfast while he fought to save the building until his death in 2017.
There are many ghosts who people claim to have identified and traced. One of which is a witch who was burned at the stake in the 1500s. She took refuge in the house before she was captured and killed. The room is now called ”The Witch’s Room”, said to be haunted by her ghost.
Another was reported by the owner himself on his first night staying there. Humphries claimed he was dragged out his bed and across the room by an unseen force. He later discovered evidence of devil worship and ritual sacrifice. Humphries even found the skeletal remains of children under the stairs, some with broken daggers within them.
Another room in the building, which is said to be haunted by a monk, was given the name ”The Bishop’s Room”. Guest who stayed at the Inn declined the offer to stay in said room after other guests who had stayed in there were terrified enough to flee the property in the middle of the night.
The Ancient Ram Inn has built up such a reputation, a large majority of the locals won’t even walk past the property after dark and the Inn is considered one of Britain’s most haunted buildings.
