The Talbot Inn first opened in 1606. Originally a coaching inn built on one of the country’s most important roads from London to Manchester and Carlisle; it had three storeys but now only has two because of a fire in the 1950’s. It is believed that criminals on death row would be brought to the Talbot for their last meal before going to their execution. Some of these bodies would be returned to one of the outbuildings, which was being used as a morgue, to study for medical science.
There have been many stories of ghost sightings and experiences in the building over the years. One apparition witnessed is believed to be that of former landlady Mary Dawson who died in 1764. She is affectionately known as ‘Hairy Mary’ and those who have seen her say she has a very angry look on her face. A little boy has been seen sitting by the fire swinging his legs. A man wearing a travelling cape carrying a leather bag has also been seen. Dark figures are seen lurking in the carpark and gardens.
Banging noises and disembodied footsteps are heard, and staff sometimes find themselves locked in the cellar. Temperature fluctuations are felt. The balls on the pool table apparently knock together of their own accord
