Great idea - I am sure we can put quite a lot of spirits to rest! - I will single-handedly account for quite a number. Should I bring my broomstick, in order to sweep all before me?

I'm never under the influence of spirits - lol - I don't drink. I can tell you one thing, you wouldn't get me on my own in a haunted cellar at night. I spent my honeymoon in a haunted cottage and that was bad enough.

Re: Area around Stag Pub

Won't spending a night in a cellar be pretty cold and uncomfortable, spirits not withstanding?

There is just no answer to that, but I'm trying to think of one.....

Re: Area around Stag Pub

I read somewhere that centuries ago when a new pub ws built, there was also a person laid to rest in the foundations for good luck. often these people died or where killed while the pub was being built. hence all the cellers where full of spirits!!!


I wonder if this is where the double meaning of spirits comes from?

Re: Area around Stag Pub

Do you have a close association with spirits littlemo? just wondered that's all. I think that as late as the 18 century there was still a custom that people laid coins, small dead furry animals or the odd moggy as a tribute to the old ways (Gods & Goddesses) and or to appease the land. Some early cultures like the Celts and even the Romans would stuff the body of a dead child into the foundations of an important building or Temple. I’m not sure that we as a culture stuck bodies of dead people in to the foundations of our pubs and ale houses. Most people who had normal deaths would be laid to rest in consecrated Ground. Highwaymen (Pub Landlords), witches and executed prisoners would be an exception to that, but would doubt they found there way into the foundations of the pub, possible exception their for landlords mind. lol

A lot depends on how many spirits, and how close we huddle together. You could always try thermal underwear, also woolly hat and gloves, thick socks, etc. Could still be a bit chilly in mid-Winter - perhaps this is one for Summer? but count me in anyway, I'll make a special trip. According to my other half, I could certainly nag them into submission ....
(foul calumny, of course).

Re: Area around Stag Pub

Forgot to mention - didn't they put a dead pig's leg in barrels of cider to give it body (no pun intended)?

Perhaps the Stag is haunted by ghost pigs looking for their legs? Staggering Man - did the footsteps sound as though it was limping?
