Wednesday 30 October 2013
Britain's most 'haunted' pub has been put up for sale just three days before Halloween.
The 400-year-old Four Crosses Pub in Cannock, Staffordshire is on the market for £400,000 and is said to be known for its "mysterious happenings", including "unexplained footsteps, glasses smashing without warning and the reported apparition of a young girl", according to website Caterer and Hotel Keeper.
Other reported ghostly sightings have included a girl walking through a wall and candlesticks being moved from the fireplace to block toilet doors.
The pub was built in 1636 as a coaching inn from shipping timbers almost 1,000 years old, according to Haunted Rooms, and several secret passages have been discovered within the building during the twentieth century.
It's reputation for supernatural activity led to it being featured on Yesterday Channel's Great British Ghosts in 2012 and it remains a regular stopping point for ghost hunts.
Colliers International, who have advertised the sale of the pub, described the it on their website as a "historic former manor house dating back 400 years with additions from the 1800’s being single, two and three storey brick and timber with multi-pitched tiled and flat roofs."
