Curfew Inn, Bath
The Curfew Inn at 11 Cleveland Place, Bath dates from around the 1820’s. It was designed by Henry Edmund Goodridge (Born 1797 – Died 26 October 1864) who’s other work include the Grade II listed Cleveland Bridge in Bath and the folly now known as Beckford’s Tower though originally named Lansdown Tower.
The building was originally a bookshop, becoming a wine merchants in 1837 and eventually changing to a public house named the Curfew Inn around 1960. Strange experiences reported in 2009 led to an article in The Sun by Tim Spanton (dated 27th September 2010) in which he states ‘A poltergeist at the Curfew Inn was said to have interfered with beer taps in February and to have tried to play a pool shot.
