This store is located in a former tavern, and is believed to be haunted by three apparitions. The first is that of a man in a Trilby hat, who has been seen by staff and customers on the ground floor. The other apparitions are of a middle-aged woman and her cat. The upper floor of the building contains a room that causes dizziness and contains objects that disappear only to reappear weeks later.

  1. hi,
    i went there just yesterday with two of my friends to have a look at the records. although none of us saw anything it defiantly had a strange feel to it and i even said “this place feels like it is haunted” before coming downstairs to see 4 people at the till talking about how people have seen paranormal activity on the loft, we were only there moments earlier. defiantly worth a visit.
