Adkin's Hardware Store

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Adkin's Hardware Store

This old-fashioned hardware store and company dates back to around 1906, and has served the town for over a hundred years. It is rumoured to be haunted by a former owner, who has been heard moving through the aisles after the business has closed for the night. The business is also home to a clock which stopped and never started again when its owner died, as well as a menacing shadowy apparition who appeared to a man who dared to take a shortcut through the car park.
