The Old Original
Haunted by an amorphous shape, thought to be a woman called Eliza Jane MacKay who committed suicide by drowning herself in the well of New Inn Farm, which is situated nearby. She is said to have been an alcoholic who drank at the inn and was buried in the orchard at New Inn Farm.
The ghost was seen on several occasions in the 1970's by the then Landlady Mrs Vera Marner, the shape always appearing to flit past the same area of the pub - perhaps an old route taken in life.
