History Of The Ancient Ram Inn

The Ancient Ram Inn, a Grade II listed building, was a former pub and B&B located in Wotton under Edge. A small market town within the district of Stroud in Gloucestershire is thought to be intensely haunted. It is believed to be one of the most haunted houses in the country. Numerous people have owned the Ancient Ram Inn since it was built in 1145, including being owned by St. Mary's Church when it was first built. It now belongs to a private family that embraces the hauntings and ghosts of this famous building. The former Inn has a history dating back to the 12th century, built on an ancient pagan burial ground. The Inn’s first recorded use was for housing masons who worked on the construction of the local Church. The Property then came under the ownership of the Church and housed the local Bishop hence the famous 'Bishops Room.' The Original property is believed to have been much larger than the size of the building that stands today.

In the Bar area of the Inn, there are the remains of a tunnel system, which is thought to link the Inn with the local church. The property finally became an Inn during the late 19th century; before John Humphries, the present owner, bought it in 1968, the inn is now a private residence.

The once Bishop of Gloucester, the Rev John Yates, is said to have tried and failed to exorcise the Ancient Ram and was quoted in the Western Daily Press as saying it was "the evilest place I have ever had the misfortune to visit.” Bristol University discovered evidence of Pagan sacrifice when a grave was found during an excavation. The remains of a woman and child were unearthed, with knives being found along with their remains.

Priests used the inn years ago to keep slaves and workers who helped construct the St. Mary Church. In 1930, the inn was bought by Maurice de Bathe. Since then, the inn has become private property, changing hands several times.
The land where the inn is built is at the intersection of 2 Ley Lines. These are places where people believe in having high spiritual energy. When you use a map, you can trace the lines through the centre of Stonehenge. According to legend, Stonehenge has an energy that travels through the Ley Lines to feed the paranormal power found in the Ancient Ram Inn. Furthermore, an ancient Pagan burial ground is reported to have resided in the location over 5,000 years ago.

Your ghost hunt will allow you exclusive access to this haunted location after dark. This is a very intense investigation as we only allow nine guests on the ground floor and nine on the upper floor.
